Ade Adesomoju, Abuja
The Code of Conduct Tribunal in Abuja has dismissed the 18 charges of false asset declaration filed against the Senate President, Dr. Bulola Saraki.
The two-man panel of the CCT ledby Danladi Umar unanimously upheld Saraki’s no-case submission, holding that the evidence led by the prosecution was discredited under cross-examination and therefore unreliable.
The CCT held that no reasonable tribunal would convict a defendant on the evidence led by the prosecution through its fourwitnesses.
