FG says it has enough evidence to nail Saraki

11 April 2016, 14:07

Abuja - The federal government has revealed that it is in possession of enough evidence to prosecute the embattled Senate President Bukola Saraki.

A member of the prosecution team, who spoke under the condition of anonymity, said that the prosecution will not leave any stone unturned in the ongoing trial of the senate president at the Code of Conduct over false asset declaration.

He said when further evidences are presented in the course of the trial, every Nigerian will believe that Saraki’s trial is not a witch-hunt as it is being speculated in some quarters, rather it is part of this government’s bid to fight corruption.
