CCT acquittal: A’Court hears FG’s appeal against Saraki today

The Court of Appeal in Abuja will today (Tuesday) hear the appeal filed by the Federal Government to challenge the acquittal of the Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, by the Code of Conduct Tribunal.

The Federal Government on June 22, 2017  filed an 11-ground notice of appeal against the June 14, 2017 judgment of the CCT acquitting Saraki of the  18 charges of false asset declaration and other related offences preferred against him in September 2015.

Our correspondent learnt on Monday that the Abuja Division of the Court of Appeal had served the hearing notice for the Tuesday’s proceedings on the parties to the appeal on Friday.

It was learnt that the Federal Government and the respondent had both filed their briefs.
