Buhari, APC Chiefs, Hide In Shame, As CJN, Walter Onnoghen, Shuns CCT Trial,

The proceedings of the scheduled arraignment of the Chief Justice of Nigeria, CJN, Justice Walter Onnoghen, has started, but he is nowhere to be found.

The members of the Danladi Umar-led three-man Tribunal, arrived in the courtroom, on time.

The court Official who announced the case, observed that the CJN was not present, and then notified the Tribunal Chairman of the development.

After the lead Prosecuting Counsel, Mr. Aliyu Umar (SAN), announced his appearance, the Tribunal asked the court Official, whether the CJN had been served with the charges and summons.

The court Official confirmed that the CJN was served through his Personal Assistant.

He said: “He was served through his Personal Assistant. We went to his house and the defendant directed his Personal Assistant to collect the charge on his behalf.

“So, the defendant has been served.”

About 30 Senior Advocates of Nigeria, SANs, led by Chief Wole Olanipekun (SAN), with about 47 other Lawyers, making about 87 Legal Luminaries, were on record as appearing for the CJN, on Monday.

Four Lawyers appeared with the Lead Prosecuting Counsel.

There are insinuations that the Chairman of the Tribunal, Umar Danladi, may order for the immediate arrest of the CJN, over his refusal to appear before the Tribunal.
