The three members of the Code of Conduct Tribunal on Thursday arrived the courtroom 14 minutes behind the 12pm re-scheduled time for the judgment on Justice Walter Onnoghen, the erstwhile Chief Justice of Nigeria.

Onnoghen is being tried before the CCT on charges of breaches of assets declaration as stipulated in the Code of Conduct for Public Officers.

The judgment was originally scheduled to be delivered at 9am on Thursday.

But as members of the tribunal were being expected to walk into the courtroom, a  court official announced the postponement of the judgment till noon.

Onnoghen had arrived the premises of the tribunal at about 8.40am ahead of the judgment.

His convoy departed the premises as soon as the news of the postponement reached him.

He later returned to the CCT about 25 minutes before the12pm re-scheduled for the judgment.

‎At about 11.56pm he stepped out his vehicle and walked into the court, which was just some few metres away from where he parked.

‎Onnoghen, decked in a grey suit with a white inner shirt,  tried to prove to be unruffled as he managed to put up a smiling face in the front of an array of cameras scrambling to get the best shots of him.

The CCT members  led by their Chairman, Danladi Umar, arrived the courtroom at exactly 12.14pm.

The two other members are Williams Atedze and Julie Anabor.
