False Asset Declaration: Supreme Court Clears Saraki From All Charges By CCT, Says ” It’s a ‘Caricature of Justice ”

Nigeria’s Supreme Court in a landmark ruling on Friday discharged Senate President, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, freeing him of all corruption of false asset declaration charges brought against him at the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT).

The Supreme Court has upheld the appeal of Senate President Bukola Saraki and discharged him of the remaining three charges against him in the case of false declaration of assets.

The apex court in its ruling delivered by Justice Centus Nweze held that the decision of the Court of Appeal holding that a prima facie case was made against Saraki is “the juridical equivalent of a forensic somersault and the court cannot lend its support to a caricature of justice.
