Onnoghen loses at Appeal Court

Former Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Walter Onnoghen, has lost the appeal he filed against his conviction by the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) for false asset charges.

The Court of Appeal, on Friday, dismissed the appeal filed by the ex-CJN challenging the legality of the exparte order by the CCT that led to his suspension.

Recall that the chairman of the tribunal, Danladi Umar, had also refused to recuse himself from the matter on allegation of bias by Onnoghen.
