Walter Onnoghen has left the premises of the Code of Conduct Tribunal CCT after he pleaded not guilty to the six charges leveled against him by the Federal government.

The trial was adjourned till March 11th.

Onnoghen arrived the CT premises this morning, two days after a bench warrant for his arrest was issued by the Tribunal. The bench warrant has since been withdrawn.

Onnoghen who was suspended by President Buhari on January 25th, is being arraigned over his alleged false declaration of assets.

Since the beginning of his trial, Onnoghen had refused to appear before the CCT on grounds that the tribunal lacks jurisdiction to hear his case.
