#### Eloquent many-to-many returning an empty value

Good day. I am trying to convert some of my models to use Eloquent mechanisms from table joins. I have three tables, and I want to use one of them as a pivot table. The three tables are shown below
First table (cp_cases_counsel)

Followed by (cp_counsel)

Then,(cases_sc)

I am trying to implement a many-to-many relationship between cases_sc and cp_counsel using cp_cases_counsel as the pivot table.

These are my models

use AppModelsSupremeCases;
use IlluminateDatabaseEloquentModel;
use AppModelsCounselCase;

class Counsel extends Model
{
//
protected $fillable = []; protected$table = 'cp_counsel';
protected $connection = 'mysql2'; public function supreme() { return$this->belongsToMany(SupremeCases::class,'cp_cases_counsel','counsel_id','suitno');
}

}


For the Cases Model

use IlluminateDatabaseEloquentModel;
use AppModelsCounsel;

class SupremeCases extends Model
{
//
protected $connection = "mysql2"; protected$fillable = [];
protected $table = 'cases_sc'; public$timestamps = false;

public function counsels()
{

return $this->belongsToMany(Counsel::class,'cp_cases_counsel','counsel_id','suitno'); } }  Getting the counsels and their cases using $counsels = Counsel::with('supreme')->get();

I get an empty result for the supreme node in the response as shown below

Please, what I’m I doing wrong?
