The Court of Appeal in Abuja has yet again adjourned the four appeals filed by the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Walter Onnoghen, in connection with his trial before the Code of Conduct Tribunal as well as the tribunal’s order for his suspension.

It was the third  successive adjournment the case had suffered since February 12.
On February 12, the cases were adjourned due to the inability of the three-man panel of the court led by Justice Abdul Aboki to form a quorum.
At the court’s resumed sitting on February 15, the respondent to the appeals, the Federal Government, through its lawyer, Mr. Oyin Koleosho of the Federal Ministry of Justice, applied for an adjournment to enable the private lawyer prosecuting Onnoghen at the CCT, Mr. Aliyu Umar (SAN), to properly take over the handling of the appeals as directed by the Attorney-General of the Federation, Mr. Abubakar Malami (SAN).
Granting the request, the court adjourned till Wednesday, but the proceedings were again stalled.
This time, Umar appeared but asked for another adjournment to enable him to amend certain papers already filed by the lawyers from the Federal Ministry of Justice and a response to the fourth appeal.
The appeals were adjourned till February 27 for hearing.
