Just in: Court extends suspension of CJN Onnoghen’s trial to January 28


Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has extended the restraining order against the continuation of the trial of the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Walter Onnoghen, till January 28.

The decision was taken by Justice N. E. Maha, who gave the order after a counsel representing the respondents told the court on Thursday that his client had not been served.

The court ordered a fresh service of the court summons to the respondents and asked that the date of service be included in the proof of service before the next hearing.

Before adjourning the matter, Ms Maha ruled that the order for parties to maintain status quo, still stands.
