Chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption (PACAC) Prof. Itse Sagay (SAN) on Wednesday said he is shocked by the acquittal of Senate President Bukola Saraki by the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT).

The CCT in Abuja on Wednesday morning dismissed the 18 charges of false asset declaration filed against Saraki by the federal government.

The two-man panel of the CCT led by Danladi Umar unanimously upheld Saraki’s no-case submission, holding that the evidence by the prosecution was discredited under cross-examination, therefore, unreliable.

The CCT held that no reasonable tribunal would convict a defendant on the evidence led by the prosecution through its four witnesses.
