The prosecution in the trial of Senate President Bukola Saraki at the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT), Rotimi Jacobs, has asked that the case be adjourned again.
This is the fourth time this is happening. Saraki whose trial started in September 2015, is facing charges of false asset declaration.
Speaking at the tribunal when the case resumed on Thursday, Jacobs said his witness for the day, Saraki’s account officer, was unavailable.
According to Jacobs, the witness told him that he would be undergoing a surgery; hence he would not be available to testify.
He therefore, urged the tribunal to adjourn the case.
After listening to the prosecution’s submission, chairman of the tribunal, Danladi Umar, adjourned the case till 4th of May, for continuation of trial.
The case was initially slated for 18th April, adjourned to 25th April, and then to Thursday, and now to 4th of May.
Who knows? The case might just be adjourned again. Lol
