CCT chairman, Danladi Umar, had on May 25, adjourned Saraki’s trial to June 1 for the continuation of cross-examination of the prosecution witness, Michael Wetkas.
According to Ibrahim Alhassan, spokesman of the tribunal, the trial would not take place because of the absence of the key prosecution witness.
Alhassan explained that the trial was adjourned – to a yet to be disclosed date – at the instance of the prosecution.
He added that the CCT chairman was not happy about the development.
The prosecution team is led by Rotimi Jacobs (SAN).
