Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN) Walter Onnoghen is surprisingly absent at the commencement of proceedings at the Code of Conduct Tribunal in Abuja Monday.
The CJN is being arraigned by the federal government for non-declaration of assets.
Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Wole Olanipekun, is leading 95 other senior advocates to defend the CJN.
The defence counsel is currently challenging the jurisdiction of the court to hear the matter.
