Saraki appeals against CCT trial at Supreme Court

The Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, has appealed against the December 12, 2017 judgment of the  Court of Appeal which reversed his acquittal by the Code of Conduct Tribunal where he was prosecuted false assets declaration and other related charges.

Delivering a unanimous judgment in the appeal filed by the Federal Government against the Senate President’s earlier acquittal, the three-man panel of the Court of Appeal, headed by Justice Tinuade Akomolafe-Wilson, restored three out of the 18 charges earlier dismissed by the CCT.

 The Danladi Umar-led CCT had, in its ruling on the no-case submission filed by Saraki after the prosecution concluded its case, dismissed the 18 counts on grounds of lack of evidence.
