CCT trial: Govt increases charges against Saraki

08 February 2017, 16:06

Abuja - The federal government has again amended the charges brought against Senate President Bukola Saraki.

Saraki is facing trial on a 16-count charge for alleged false asset declaration at the Code of Conduct Tribunal, Abuja.

The trial, which began in September 2015, was earlier amended in 2016, with an addition of three charges.

At the resumed hearing of the case on Wednesday, prosecution counsel, Rotimi Jacobs, announced his decision to amend the charges against Saraki, reports Premium Times.

He said two more charges have been added after investigations revealed more facts.

After informing the tribunal about the application for hearing on the amended charge, the tribunal chairman, Danladi Umar, said he had not been briefed about the decision to amend the charges.

The defence counsel, however, said they had been served with a motion for the amendment of charge by the prosecution, reports Daily Post

Chairman of the Tribunal, Danladi Umar adjourned till February 23.
