SENATE PRESIDENT SARAKI, SUPREME COURT JUSTICE SYLVESTER NGWUTA MAY FORFEIT THEIR PROPERTIES PENDING OUTCOME OF THEIR CORRUPTION TRIAL

Senate President, BUKOLA SARAKI and Justice SYLVESTER NGWUTA of the Supreme Court, among other defendants currently being prosecuted before the Code of Conduct Tribunal, may have their properties temporarily forfeited pending the final determination of their cases.

This is according to the CCT’s new Practice Direction, 2017, released last week.

 The 26-paragraph Practice Direction, with commencement date of February 16, 2017, is signed by the CCT’s Chairman, DANLADI UMAR, and the other member of the tribunal, WILLIAM ATED-ZE.

 Paragraph 12 of the document, which deals with ‘Seizures’, gives the prosecution the discretion to apply, through ex-parte motion, for temporary forfeiture of assets which are subject of the trial pending the final determination of the case.
