Saraki failed to declare N375m London property – Witness

Senate President, Bukola Saraki

The first prosecution witness in the ongoing trial of the Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, Mr. Michael Wetkas, told the Code of Conduct Tribunal on Tuesday that  Saraki bought a property worth N375m in London in 2010 which he did not declare.

Saraki is being prosecuted on 16 counts, including false and anticipatory asset declaration which he allegedly made when he was the governor of Kwara State between 2003 and 2007.

Wetkas said under cross-examination by defence counsel, Mr. Paul Usoro (SAN),  that the Senate President neither declared the London property nor the liability of the loan in his asset declaration form submitted to the Code of Conduct Bureau at the end of his second term as governor in 2011.
