ABUJA: Walter Onnoghen, chief justice of Nigeria (CJN), was absent as the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) resumed his trial in Abuja on Tuesday.
Onnoghen is being tried for alleged false declaration of assets.
He was absent in the court last week but his counsel argued he had not been served summons to appear for the trial.
He was subsequently served summons days after, although an FCT high court had already ruled against his trial.
