Saraki Docked [PHOTO] Plead Not Guilty To 13 Charges, Case Adjourned To October 21

The trial of the Senate President, Dr. Olubukola
Saraki, at the Code of Conduct Tribunal, CCT, sitting
in Abuja, has been adjouned to October 21.

Earlier, the trial of Dr. Olubukola Saraki took a
dramatic turn when he refused to mount the dock.

The trial tribunal, headed by Justice Danladi Umar,
called up Saraki’s case at exactly 10:32am.
Where is the prosecution, is the accused person
here?”, Justice Umar who was looking directly at
Saraki from his vantage post, queried.

“Mr lord I cannot see him. I think the first thing is
for him to enter the dock first, then we will
announce our appearances. After which the charge
will be read to him”, the prosecuting counsel, Mr.
Rotimi Jacobs submitted.
“With profound respect to the chairman and
member of this tribunal, I agree with my learned
brother that we should enter appearances first.

order of this tribunal was that the accused should
be produced today. It was not for his to enter his
plea. The case was earlier adjourned for mention”,
counsel to Saraki, Mr. J.B. Daudu, insisted.
Daudu vehemently opposed the idea of Saraki
entering the dock, relying on an Appeal Court
decided case law in Igbeke vs FRN, 2015, 3 NWLR.

Eventually, Saraki entered the dock and pleaded not
guilty to the 13-count criminal charge that was
preferred against him by the federal government.
The Tribunal adjourned sitting to October 21, 2015.
