Happening Now: Saraki enters dock to take his plea [PHOTOS]

There was an argument at the Code of Conduct Tribunal, CCT, over where Saraki was to stay in taking his plea on the 13-count charges preferred against him which border on false assets declaration.


While the prosecution team led by Rotimi Jacobs insisted that the rule of law must prevail, by Saraki taking his plea from the dock, the Senate
President’s counsel, Joseph Daudu countered that the administration of the criminal justice system does not apply at the tribunal, hence Saraki should take his plea from wherever he is already seated at the tribunal.


Eventually, the prosecution prevailed with Saraki taking a seat at the dock.


Meanwhile, Saraki has pleaded not guilty to all 13 count charges read to him by Rotimi Jacobs.
