CCT orders Police, DSS to Arrest CJN Onnoghen

The Code of Conduct Tribunal, CCT, sitting in Abuja, has ordered key security agencies in the country to arrest the suspended Chief Justice of Nigeria, CJN, Justice Walter Onnoghen, and produce him for trial on Friday February 15th. The order followed an application the Federal Government made for a bench warrant to be issued against the suspended CJN who has refused to come before the tribunal to answer to allegations of non-disclosure of his assets after he assumed office in March 2017.
