The Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) will resume the trial of Justice Walter Onnoghen on February 4, 2019.

Onnoghen is standing trial over allegations of fraudulent declaration of assets.

He was suspended by President Muhammadu Buhari on January 25, 2019 on a directive issued by the CCT.

Justice Ibrahim Tanko Muhammad replaced him in acting capacity.

Onnoghen had filed a suit at the Court of Appeal challenging his trial but his case was dismissed on the ground that the suit was "brought in a vacuum". See Also Breaking News BREAKING: Appeal Court Rejects Onnoghen's Attempt To Stop His CCT Trial

The Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja on Thursday, had dismissed Onnoghen's motion, seeking stay of execution on his ongoing trial at the CCT.
