According to new report, witness disclosed that Senator Bukola Saraki was being paid governor salaries till August 2015; four years after leaving office. The prosecution witness is however yet to be cross examined.
An agent of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Michael Wetkas, who is appearing as the first witness for the prosecution at the trial of Senate President Bukola Saraki, on Wednesday made more shocking revelations at the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT).
While giving his testimony, Wetkas tendered documents showing Saraki’s foreign currency accounts with Guaranty Trust Bank (GTB) as well as the cashflow in and out of the accounts. Also tendered as evidence was an offer letter for a loan of N375million which Saraki allegedly used to purchase a property in London.
The documents tendered before the court by Wetkas through the prosecution counsel, Mr Rotimi Jacobs SAN were admitted in evidence and marked as exhibits by the CCT chairman, Justice Danladi Umar.
Wetkas proceeded to list other financial transactions discovered by the EFCC to include payment of the sum of N200,460,000 to the Presidential Committee on Sale of Government Property, made by Saraki for the purchase of a property in Lagos.
