The suspended Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Walter Onnoghen has arrived at the Code of Conduct Tribunal for his trial.
The embattled CJN had failed to show up at the CCT since it commenced the trial.
Consequently, on February 13, the CCT Chairman Danladi Umar ordered his arrest.
Umar issued the warrant to the Inspector General of Police (IGP) to arrest Onnoghen and bring him to the tribunal unfailingly on Friday.
He also directed the Director of the Department of State Services (DSS) to join in arresting the suspended CJN.
One of his lawyers had, however, told Channels Television that he was not arrested but decide to make himself available to the court.
Onnoghen is facing trial over alleged failure to declare some of his assets to the Code of Conduct Bureau.
