A Federal High Court sitting in Jabi, Abuja has adjourned the trial of Senate president, Bukola Saraki, his deputy, Ike Ekweremadu as well as two others, following the court’s vacation that commenced today (Monday).
PUNCH reports that Saraki, Ekweremadu, and two co-accused – a former Clerk to the National Assembly, Salisu Maikasu, and his then deputy, Benedict Efeturi – were in court briefly and left as soon as they were informed that the court was not going to sit.
The accused persons were arraigned by the Federal government on June 27. They pleaded not guilty to two counts of criminal conspiracy and forgery before Justice Yusuf Halilu.
The trial which was supposed to continue today was adjourned to September 28 2016.
