Onnoghen Prepares For Defence At CCT Today

The Code of Conduct Tribunal has commenced sitting at the resumed hearing of Justice Walter Onnoghen’s trial for alleged non-declaration of assets.
The tribunal had on Friday ruled that Justice Onnoghen has a case to answer.
Justice Onnoghen’s counsel, Adegboyega Awomolo, raised concerns that the proceedings from Friday’s hearing have not been made available to them.
He requested that a witness, Miss Theresa Nwafor who work for the CCT should be subpoena to appear as a witness for the CJN.
The witness is the Director of the CCB in Benin.
Mr Awomolo also informed the chairman that he ought to rule on his application before any other thing, a position the prosecution counsel did not object to.
In his ruling, the chairman of the tribunal granted the request and ordered her to be at the tribunal on Wednesday by 10 am.
Meanwhile, a second witness Lawal Busari had taken the witness stand on behalf of Justice Onnoghen.
