April 6, 2016 – Power Failure Forces CCT To Postpone Saraki’s Corruption Trial
Black Out In Court As Witness Testifies Against Saraki, CCT Trial Postponed
Power outage at the court around 4:55pm today has forced the Justice Danladi Umar to adjourn Saraki’s corruption proceedings as first prosecution witness continue in his evidence as led by prosecution counsel Rotimi Jacobs.
Justice Umar adjourned proceedings to 18 April after admitting as evidence letters sent to FCT Development Control and AGIS in respect of No 1 and No 3 Targus Street, Mataima Abuja.
The documents released by Michael Weskat this afternoon confirmed Saraki as the owner of the properties as well as the date the properties were purchased.
Also admitted were letters written to CAC to confirm the ownership of companies the defendant declared in his assets declaration form and some other companies and the responses from the CAC to the letters.
The documents were admitted as exhibit by the Court as the defence counsel said he reserved his objections to the documents.
The defence has also given undertaking to begin its cross examination of the witness on the adjourned date.
