Nigeria’s Senate President, Bukola Saraki, on Tuesday morning arrived venue of the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) in company of other senators including the Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekwerenmadu, to defend allegations of false declaration assets.

His appearance was, however, not without drama, as the security convoy of the Senate President was prevented by security operatives from using the Presidential Villa gate to the venue of the tribunal sitting, just as live media coverage of the proceedings was barred.
