FG Reportedly Closes Case Against Suspended CJN

Nigerians have expressed their disappointment at federal government after it closed its case against Walter Onnoghen, suspended chief justice of Nigeria (CJN).

On Thursday at the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT), government’s counsel, Aliyu Umar, revealed that they have closed their case after calling just three witnesses to the stand out of the six initially listed.

“I have called three witnesses. If the defence needs them, I can call the other three,” he said.

Responding, Adeboyega Awomolo, counsel to Onnoghen, rejected the offer.

“I don’t want them, I don’t want them,” he said.

Awomolo then informed the tribunal that they intend to file a no-case submission but they would need time to write an address.

“We intend to take advantage of section 303 of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act (ACJA) 2015 on no-case submission,” he said.
