    -Onnoghen: CCT Adjourns CJN’S trial till February 13

    YBTC NEWS-The Code of Conduct Tribunal has adjourned the trial of the embattled Chief Justice of Nigeria, CJN, Walter Onnoghen to February 13, 2019.

    The adjournment followed an application made by the Defence Counsel Adegboyega Awomolo (SAN), at the resumed hearing of the case on Monday.

    Awomolo informed the tribunal that the AGF had submitted a petition to the NJC on the same subject matter which necessitated the matter before the tribunal and to avoid the defendant suffering double jeopardy, the need for adjournment became imperative.

    The Prosecutor Aliyu Umar (SAN) did not oppose the application.
