The Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) has announced the indefinite adjournment of the Senate President, Bukola Saraki’s trial.

Premium Times reports that the tribunal chairman, Danladi Umar, said Saraki's case was adjourned because the court needed to hear other cases.

The decision of the tribunal to adjourn the Senate President's case indefinitely, was announced on Wednesday, June 1, 2016.

Reports say one of the reasons for the adjournment was that the key prosecution witness, Mr. Michael Wetkast was absent.

 According to Premium Times, an inside source revealed the Wetkast had to make an appearance at another trial at the Federal High Court in Abuja.
