The Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) has indefinitely adjourned the trial of Walter Onnoghen, suspended chief justice of Nigeria.

At its sitting on Monday, the CCT said the trial remains adjourned pending the determination of the application at the appeal court.

The federal government is prosecuting Onnoghen at the CCT for alleged false assets declaration.

Onnoghen had through his lawyers filed an application at the appeal court challenging the tribunal’s jurisdiction to sit over the case.

Last week, the appellate court directed the tribunal to stay proceedings pending the hearing and determination of the CJN’s application.
