The absence of prosecution witnesses on Thursday in Abuja at the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) again stalled the trial of Senate President, Bukola Saraki.

The prosecution was similarly missing at the last hearing.

Saraki is standing trial, since September 2015, over alleged false assets declaration while serving as governor of Kwara.

The prosecution had listed eight witnesses who would testify against the senate president in the 13- count charge of alleged false assets declaration.

Those to testify are Yahaya Bello, Michael Wetkas, Mustapha Musa, Nura Bako, Adamu Garba, Samuel Madojemu, Abdulrahaman Dauda and Nwachukwu Amazu.

Some of the witnesses were said to be DSS operators who investigated the four forms submitted to the Code of Conduct Bureau by Saraki.

The prosecutor, Rotimi Jacobs (SAN) asked for short adjournment to enable him produce his witnesses.

Chairman of the tribunal, Justice Danladi Umar adjourned the matter till May 4 for continuation.
