The National Industrial Court, Abuja, on Monday ordered the service of an interim order and hearing notice on the Chairman of the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT), Malam Danladi Umar.
The orders follow the suit seeking to restrain the tribunal from prosecuting the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Mr Walter Onnoghen.
At the hearing, counsel to the claimant, James Igwe (SAN), informed the court that originating processes and interim order had been served on all parties except the tribunal’s chairman and the Senate President.
Igwe said it was the secretary to the tribunal’s chairman that received the document and not the chairman personally.
He, however, said the senate president was not served as an oversight that should be corrected immediately.
The judge, Justice Sanusi Kado, therefore ordered that the processes and interim order be served on the tribunal’s chairman through substituted means.
