Drama ensues between Saraki’s lawyer and a reluctant EFCC witness at the CCT

Bukola Saraki at the Code of Conduct Tribunal | YNaija.com

Again, on Thursday, the trial of Senate President, Bukola Saraki, at the Code of Conduct Tribunal took a dramatic turn as Saraki’s lawyer, Paul Usoro, read out details of the various transfers the defendants made to his foreign account while he was Kwara state governor.

The lawyer disclosed this following the refusal of the first prosecution witness, Michael Wetkas, to read out from an exhibit tendered before the Tribunal.

The exhibit is said to contain all the transfers made by Saraki to his American Express Service, New York account through his Guaranteed Trust Bank account (GTB) in Nigeria.

The witness stated that reading out the transfer will ‘take the whole day’ hence his refusal to read them out one by one.

At this point, Usoro began to read out all the transfers to the witness, who agreed on its accuracy.

Here are the figures read out by Saraki’s lawyer: “March, 3, 2011, $30,656.74; February, 2, 2011, $32, 687; October, 18, 2010, $48,900; September, 2, 2010, $18,000; August, 32, 2010, $100,000; May 18, 2010, $134,000; Jan 21, 2010, $64,000; July 29, 2010, $80,984; August 26, 2011, $65,000; Jan, 27, 2012, $145,000.”
