The Supreme Court on Friday dismissed the suit filed by the Cross River State government challenging the suspension and trial of former Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Walter Onnoghen.

Following the suspension of Mr Onnoghen in January, by an order of the Code of Conduct Tribunal, the Rivers State Government approached the Supreme Court with a request that the court should invoke section 232 (1) of the constitution to assume original jurisdiction on the matter.

The court on Friday said it lacked jurisdiction to entertain the matter and consequently dismissed the application.
