Saraki’s CCT trial adjourned again


The Code of Conduct Tribunal on Wednesday adjourned hearing in the alleged false and anticipatory assets declaration trial of Nigeria’s Senate President, Bukola Saraki, after prosecution counsel failed to show up.

Danladi Umar, chairman of the tribunal, fixed next Tuesday for continuation of trial only 45 mins into Wednesday’s proceeding.

Mr. Umar also fixed Tuesday for hearing on a resh disqualification motion filed by the defence team.

Mr. Umar is being asked to step down from the case on allegations that he lacked moral standing to continue presiding over Mr. Saraki’s case.

Mr. Umar said a notice would be communicated to Mr. Rotimi Jacobs, lead prosecution counsel, advising him on the new date.
