Assets Declaration: Saraki discharged by CCT

Senate President Bukola Saraki has been discharged and acquitted by the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) over allegation of false assets declaration.

Mr Saraki, who was charged by the Federal Government over 16-count charge bordering on false declaration of assets, has been standing trial since late 2015.

But the case was struck as the evidence provided lacks sufficient credit when it was cross- examined.

The tribunal said the burden of the prosecution was not substantiated under the law.

The trubunal, ruled by its two member unanimously, further upheld that the charge against Saraki is a no-case submission.
