Apala was testifying as the first prosecution witness in the trial of the suspended CJN on the charges of false and non-declaration of charges preferred against the embattled top judicial officer.

The witness, led by the prosecuting counsel, Mr. Aliyu Umar, said the first form earlier admitted as Exhibit 2, covered the period June 8, 2005 when Onnoghen was appointed a Justice of the Supreme Court till November 22, 2014.

He said the second form as Exhibit 3 was declared after the defendant assumed office as CJN.

Fielding questions from the prosecuting counsel, Apala said the two forms were received by an official of the bureau, Awal Yakassai, on December 14, 2016.

He confirmed that the two forms had acknowledgement slips bearing the same date.
