Justice Walter Onnoghen, the suspended chief justice of Nigeria has filed a notice of appeal against the ruling of the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) on his no-case submission.
Onnoghen, dissatisfied with the ruling of the CCT resolved to challenge the decision of the Tribunal at the Court of Appeal in Abuja, Channels TV reports.
In the proposed appeal, the “Federal Republic of Nigeria” was listed as the sole defendant.
According to Onnoghen, the CCT erred in law when it dismissed his no-case submission by its alleged failure to appreciate his submission that the processes that led to the criminal proceeding against him by the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB) violated the provision of the law
Going further, Onnoghen insisted that the members of the Tribunal erred in law when they overruled his no-case submission when there is uncontroverted evidence before it that there was no lawful investigation into the allegations against him.
Here is the notice of appeal by Justice Onnoghen:
