Saraki's Trial Postponed Till Next Week

The trial of Senate President Bukola Saraki has been postponed by one week as his lawyers led by Kanu Agabi SAN surprisingly submitted an application to the Code of Conduct Tribunal challenging the jurisdiction of the tribunal to try him for failing to declare his assets.
Saraki arrived the venue of the trial in Abuja under tight security, however, what had promised to be a historic trial date did not happen as the tribunal quickly ended the day by acceding to the request of Saraki’s lawyers contesting the tribunal’s jurisdiction. 

The tribunal adjourned the case till Friday next week for the continuation of hearing.
