Just In: Saraki Victorious as 15 charges dropped at Court of Appeal, to appeal 3 other charges to Supreme Court

The President of the Senate, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, was successful today as the Court of Appeal dismissed 13 out of the 18 count charges that were filed against him.

Recall that in a unanimous decision, the two-man panel tribunal headed by Justice Danladi Umar, held that Federal Government failed to prove essential elements of all the allegations it leveled against Saraki.

Also recall that the tribunal held that oral and documentary evidence that the federal government adduced before it were discredited during cross-examination, saying that the proof of evidence was so ‘manifestly unreliable that no reasonable court or tribunal could rely on it to make any conviction.
