Not fewer than 47 Senior Advocates of Nigeria stormed the Code of Conduct Tribunal for the opening hearing in the false assets declaration case against the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Walter Onnoghen.

Onnoghen is accused of failing to declare a series of bank accounts linked to him for several years, in alleged violation of the code of conduct law for public officeholders.

The charges against the chief justice were triggered by a civil society group, Anti-Corruption and Research-Based Data Initiative (ARDI) headed by Dennis Aghanya, a former aide of President Muhammadu Buhari.
