Justice Walter Onnoghen, the Suspended Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), is at the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) in Abuja to attend proceedings of his trial of charges of alleged breach of code of conduct for public officers.

Justice Onnoghen arrived the Jabi office of the CCT around 10.00am in a convoy of cars with his lawyers. He was accompanied by heavy security.

He stayed inside his official Prado jeep for about 20 minutes, before he walked up the hall into court.

Onnghen has consistently shunned the CCT since proceedings opened in the case on January 14 this year.

He instead challenged the tribunal’s jurisdiction and obtained restraining orders form High Courts.

On Wednesday, the CCT issued a bench warrant for his arrest after running out of patience with the suspended CJN.
