The Supreme Court on Friday dismissed the suit filed by the Cross River State government challenging the suspension and trial of former Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Walter Onnoghen.

The court on Friday said it lacked jurisdiction to entertain the matter and consequently dismissed the application.
