Walter Onnoghen, chief justice of Nigeria (CJN), and President Muhammadu Buhari met during the 2019 armed forces remembrance day in Abuja on Tuesday.
That was the first time that both men would be seen publicly since the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB) filed six counts of non-declaration of assets against the CJN.
The charges were filed after Dennis Aghanya, a former aide of Buhari, wrote a petition against Onnoghen.
Among the dignitaries present at the event were: Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo; Senate President Bukola Saraki; Yakubu Dogara, speaker of the house of representatives; and Mansur Dan-Ali minister of defence.
