Yesterday, the rumor mill had it that Onnoghen had been advised to shun the Code of Conduct Tribunal. This however seems to ring true as the CJN was marked absent for his corruption trial this morning by 10am in Jabi, Abuja.
In response to this situation, the Chief Justice of Nigeria who hails from Cross River has the backing of the Niger Delta. The Coalition of Niger Delta agitators show their solidarity by threatening hat it would attack he nation’s oil infrastructure if the Federal government does not back down on its plan to arraign CJN Onnoghen before the CCT. Over 40 lawyers appeared on the defense team. Unfortunately, due to the CJN’s absence, the trial was adjourned till next week Tuesday, January 22, 2019.
