Drama As FG’s Lawyers ‘Clash’ During Onnoghen’s Trial

by Dyepkazah Shibayan

There was a little bit of drama at the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) on Monday.

Aliyu
Umar, lead counsel of federal government in the trial of Walter
Onnoghen, suspended chief justice of Nigeria (CJN), argued with Zainab
Duke, a lawyer on his team, in the full glare of the tribunal.

An
argument broke out shortly after they had entered into appearance in
the case. It is not clear what led to argument but Umar was seen
shouting at her.

Duke wanted to make an observation but Umar said: “Sit down, I am leading.”

At this point Danladi Umar, CCT chairman, intervened and asked what the problem was.

A police officer moved to give a microphone to Duke to speak but the senior lawyer snatched the microphone.

Umar said: “She wants to address the tribunal but I have not given her permission to do that.”

Duke got up to explain to the CCT chairman but she was not audible.

Thereafter, the lead counsel to the federal government applied that her name be removed from appearance.

“I want to apply that her name be withdrawn from appearance,” he said.

Ruling on the application, the CCT chairman said Duke should “take her leave or take her seat at the back bench.”

She
walked out of the tribunal after Umar’s ruling. Both prosecution and
defence adopted their addresses after which a date for judgement will be
fixed.

Onnoghen, who is standing trial over alleged false assets declaration, resigned last month.
