How Saraki Paid for N522m Property In Seven Tranches

The prosecution today continued its case against the Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, with its first witness, Mr. Michael Wetkas, revealing evidence of how the accused allegedly bought a property at 17, Mcdonald Street, Ikoyi, Lagos, in seven tranches.

The prosecution alleged in the 13 counts it preferred against Saraki that the property was part of those which the Senate President failed to declare to the Code of Conduct Bureau while he was governor of Kwara State.  Meanwhile, the Chairman of the Code of Conduct Tribunal, Danladi Umar, has directed that the trial of the Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, will henceforth proceed day to day until the conclusion of the case, as the trial will begin 10am and end 6pm everyday.

Umar, who gave this directive at the resumed hearing in the case yesterday, said his decision to conduct the trial day to day was in line with the provisions of section 396(6) of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act.
