Hullabaloo @CCT as Umar orders Saraki's lawyer out

There was a hullabaloo Thursday at the daily trail of the Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki over alleged bogus declaration of assets over 13 years, reports ITRealms.

The incident follows the order by the Chairman, Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT), Hon. Danladi Umar, who was reportedly to have asked security officers to kick out one of Saraki’s lawyers, Barr. Raphael Oluyede.

The CCT chairman also refused an application by Saraki team of lawyers requesting him to step down from the trial, more so as a judge.

“This motion filed by a mere busybody legal practitioner is not accepted by this tribunal. Members of the inner bar, you are to guide him. How can you allow such a rubbish thing from him? This motion is of no consequence. As far as this tribunal is concerned is thrown away,” he wondered.

According to correspondent, a verbal brawl ensued between Umar and Oluyede when the lawyer asked the tribunal for an opportunity to expatiate on the application, which was promptly refused by Umar.

Rather, Umar was reportedly ordered the lawyer to take his seat after overruling his request, but persistent Oluyede declined and a shouting match then ensued.

However, the attendant qualm was promptly brought to a halt by the presence of security officers in the courtroom.
