The trial of Senate President Bukola Saraki for “false declaration of assets” commenced at the code of conduct tribunal in Abuja on Friday as the tribunal has ordered.
Saraki refused to appear in person as ordered by the code of conduct tribunal but was represented by his lawyer, Mahmud Magaji. It appears he is hiding behind the directive by a federal high court asking the Tribunal and Saraki to appear for justification of the case on Monday.
He told the Tribunal that Saraki, for failing to respect a competent court, should be arrested within the next two hours by the police authority in Abuja and brought to court immediately.
More details coming.
