Federal High Court sitting in Abuja,
yesterday, aborted plans by the Code
of Conduct Bureau, CCB, to dock him
before the Code of Conduct Tribunal,
CCT, today on a 13-count charge
bothering on corruption and false
declaration of assets.
In a chamber ruling he delivered
Thursday, Justice Ahmed

Court stops Saraki’s trial
Mohammed, summoned the Federal
Ministry of Justice, Chairman of the
CCB, Mr. Sam Saba and that of the CCT,
Justice Danladi Umar, to appear before
the court on September 21, to show
cause why Saraki should be prosecuted
over the allegations that were leveled
against him in the charge.
Equally summoned to appear before
the court was the deputy director in
the office of the Attorney General of
the Federation, Mr. M.S. Hassan, who
signed the charge against Saraki.
