The suspended Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Walter Onnoghen, has arrived the Code of Conduct Tribunal where charges of false assets declaration are pending against him.
He arrived in a convoy of about six vehicles around 9:40am on Friday.
But he has yet to step out of his vehicle with tinted glass and shielded number plate as of the time of filing this report.
The tribunal chairman, Danladi Umar had on Wednesday ordered his arrest following his consistent absence from court to answer to the charges preferred against him.
The order of arrest was, however, not effected as he was said to have reached an agreement with the security agencies to voluntarily submit himself for Friday’s proceedings.
The three-man tribunal will begin sitting at 10am.
