Saraki In The Dock At Code Of Conduct Tribunal

The Senate President, Bukola Saraki, has finally appeared before the Code of Conduct Tribunal where he is being charged for alleged false declaration of assets.
Mr. Saraki failed to appear before the tribunal on Friday, and again on Monday, despite an arrest warrant issued against him.

He faces a 13-count charge bordering on corruption and false assets declaration.
Mr. Saraki said Monday that he would appear before the tribunal, after the Court of Appeal in Abuja dismissed his application for a stay of execution.

He arrived at the tribunal at about 10.20am, accompanied by deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, and other senators.
The tribunal has disallowed live broadcast of its proceedings. But you can follow highlights of the session below.
UPDATE : The Chairman of the Tribunal came into the courtroom at 10.32 a.m, and apologised for the delay in the commencement of proceeding. He said the tribunal was sorting out some matters.
