BREAKING: False Asset Declaration Charge: Saraki discharged, acquitted

The Code of Conduct Tribunal has dismissed the case of false asset declaration against Senate President, Bukola Saraki.

Mr. Saraki made a no-case submission on May 26, after the prosecution closed its case. Saraki, through his submission, contended that none of the exhibits tendered and no evidence given by the four prosecution witnesses linked him to the alleged offences to warrant him to defend the charges.

In the ruling on Wednesday, the tribunal chairman, Danladi Umar, said the prosecution had failed to prove its allegations.

All the 18 charges brought against him by the Federal Government have now been dismissed.
