Abuja - The Senate Committee on Ethics, Privileges, and Public Petitions has called off the summon issued to the Chairman of the Code of Conduct Tribunal CCT, Danladi Umar.

The committee withdrew the summon after a meeting at the National Assembly today April 20th.

Many believe that the summon was to distract Danladi from the ongoing daily trial of Senate President Bukola Saraki who is being accused of false declaration of assets while he was governor of Kwara state.

Saraki's trial started on Monday over allegations that he failed to declare his assets as required by law.
