JUST IN... Court Postpones Saraki’s Case ‘Indefinitely’

The Abuja Appeal court has indefinitely postponed ruling on the case between the Senate president Bukola Saraki and the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT).

The court gave no reason for adjournment and to communicate a new date to all parties at a later date.

In September, Saraki had approached the appeal court seeking to stop his trial for supposed false declaration of assets at the CCT.

The Senate president was arraigned on September 22, after he tried ineffectively to use the Federal High Court and the Court of Appeal to thwart his arraignment.

Saraki was scheduled to return to the Code of Conduct Tribunal on Wednesday to face federal prosecutors who maintain that they have overwhelming evidence against him.

The CCT has slammed a 13-count charge of corruption on Bukola Saraki.
