The court of Appeal sitting in Abuja on Tuesday upturned the acquittal of Senate President Bukola Saraki by the Code of Conduct Bureau over false asset declaration.

CCT had dismissed the case filed against Saraki, saying the prosecution failed to prove its case beyond reasonable doubt.

But appellate court quashed the acquittal, saying the Senate President has a case to answer.

The court dismissed 15 out of the 18 counts of false assets declaration instituted against the Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, before the Code of Conduct Tribunal.
The three-man panel of the court led by Justice Tinuade Akomolafe-Wilson unanimously ordered  the Senate President to return to the CCT to face trial on three of the counts.
