The leading anti-graft body in Nigeria has washed its hands off the trial of Saraki at the Code of Code Tribunal which lasted for almost two years.
Senate President Bukola Saraki
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has said that it was not prosecuting the President of the Senate Bukola Saraki in the recently concluded false declaration of assets case.
In a series of tweets on its Twitter handle @officialEFCC, the anti-corruption agency made it clear to Nigerians that it was not the prosecutor at the Code of Conduct Tribunal trial.
The EFCC also disowned counsel, Rotimi Jacobs, saying that he is an independent anti-corruption lawyer to the state and could be counsel to any organisation.
During the two-year-trial of Saraki, Rotimi Jacobs was always referred to as counsel for the EFCC, but the EFCC clarifies that he is not attached to the commission.
