Saraki’s trial adjourned ‘indefinitely’

Saraki’s trial adjourned ‘indefinitely’
June 01 21:29 2016

The Code of Conduct Tribunal on Wednesday
 adjourned the trial of Senate
President, Dr Bukola Saraki,
indefinitely.
This decision, the court said, was  forced by the absence of a principal witness 
on the side of the prosecution.

The trial had on May 25
 adjourned till Wednesday, for the
cross-examination of the witness,
Michael Wetkas, to continue.

The tribunal chairman, Danladi
 Umar, said the adjournment was
to give the court time to hear
other cases.
The prosecution and defence
teams also said the break would
allow them prepare their cases
 better.
 It was later gathered that Wetkas was actually attending another
trial at the Federal High Court,
Abuja.

The development is coming 24 hours
after an expected ruling on
Saraki’s case at the Court of
Appeal, Abuja, stalled after the
court failed to form a quorum.
