In a preemptive move, the Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja this morning gave a ruling stopping the Code of Conduct Tribunal from arresting the Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki.
Last Friday, the Tribunal issued the warrant for Saraki’s arrest following his failure to honour its invitation.
Chairman of the Tribunal, Justice Danladi Umar, had directed the Inspector General of Police, Solomon Arase, to effect Saraki’s arrest and produce him before the Tribunal today.
Meanwhile, Senate President Bukola Saraki failed to appear at the resumed trial by the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT), trying his alleged failure to declare some assets during his tenure in office as Kwara State governor between 2003 and 2011.
Saraki is facing a 13-count charge bordering on alleged corruption and false declaration of assets, levelled against him by the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB).
