Appeal Court Reserves Judgment in Appeal Against Saraki’s Acquittal

Abuja  (Sundiata Post) – The Court of Appeal in Abuja has reserved judgment in the appeal by the Federal Government asking it to set aside the acquittal of Senate President, Bukola Saraki on charges of false assets declaration.

A three-man panel of the appellate court, led by Justice Tinuade Akomolafe Wilson told parties, after they adopted their briefs of argument Tuesday, that the court would inform them when judgment was ready.

The Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT), in a ruling on June 14 this year, discharged and acquitted Saraki on the 18-count charge of false assets declaration, among others, brought against him by the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB).
