    The Police has stopped the live coverage of the ongoing trial of the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, who is facing a 13-count criminal charge bordering on false declaration of assets preferred against him.

    SECURITY was unusually tight at the Code of Conduct Tribunal, this morning, as the Senate President and former governor of Kwara state, Bukola Saraki, is expected to appear before the Danladi Umar-led Tribunal.

    The Court of Appeal and the Federal High Court, both sitting in Abuja, yesterday, refused to shield the Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki from being arraigned at the Code of Conduct Tribunal, CCT, on a 13-count criminal charge bordering on false declaration of assets preferred against him. The Senate President had approached both courts to provide him shelter and save him from being docked.
