Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, has appeared before the Code of Conduct tribunal.
The Senate President is accompanied by his Deputy, Ike Ekweremadu and other Senators, as well as former Governor of Sokoto State, Aliyu Wamakko.
The Tribunal has, however, barred all media outfits from broadcasting the proceedings and security has been tightened at the venue of the trial.
The FCT Police Commissioner, Mr Wilson Inalegwu, is in charge of security at the tribunal.
An argument ensued as to where the accused will be seated, as the prosecutor, Rotimi Jacobs (SAN), argues that the “business of the day is for the accused person to take his plea”, insisting that “the Senate President must be seated at the dock”.
The Senate President, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, had on Monday said he would appear before the Code of Conduct Tribunal on Tuesday, September 22′.
