A three-man-panel of the Court of Appeal in FCT, Abuja, on Wednesday, February 27, reserved judgments in the four appeals filed by the suspended Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN) Walter Onnoghen.

The Nation reports that Justice Stephen Adah, who led the three-man-panel, said they will be informed when judgments were ready. The appeals are

1. CA/A/44c/2019

2. CA/A/CA/A/63c/19

3. CA:A/70c/2019

4. CA/A/114c/2019

Onnoghen is, by his first appeal, challenging the jurisdiction of the CCT to hear the charge against him, being a serving judicial officer.

In the second one, the suspended chief justice is querying the propriety of the CCT’s ruling of January 14 this year, in which it elected to hear all pending applications.

The third appeal is against the CCT ex-parte order directing Onnoghen to vacate office as CJN and for President Muhammadu Buhari to appoint an acting CJN.

The fourth appeal challenges the competence of the warrant of arrest issued against the suspended CJN by the CCT.

Meanwhile, Continentour.com.ng earlier reported that the embattled CJN Onnoghen finally got docked at the Code of Conduct Tribunal on February 15, as trial continued in the case of his alleged refusal to declare all his assets before the bureau in charge as head of the judiciary.

It was the first time the CJN would appear physically for trial in the case brought against him by the federal government.
