CCT Rejects High Court, Industrial Court Orders Stopping CJN Onnoghen’s Trial

The Code of Conduct Tribunal on Tuesday said orders made by the Federal High Court and the National Industrial Court of Nigeria stopping the trial of the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Walter Onnoghen, are not binding on it.

The CCT held that the courts are of coordinate jurisdiction with the CCT and so lack powers to issue orders to the tribunal.

The CCT chairman, Danladi Umar, said this while rejecting a motion by Onnoghen asking the tribunal to adjourn indefinitely based on orders made by the high courts and the NICN that parties must maintain status quo.
