CCT: Drama As Saraki's Lawyer Gives Breakdown Of Transfers To Foreign Account 

News

The ongoing trial of the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, at the Code of Conduct Tribunal, CCT, took a dramatic twist on Thursday as Saraki’s counsel, Paul Usoro gave details of various transfer of funds by the Senate President to his foreign account as governor.

Usoro made the revelation after the prosecution witness, Michael Wetkas refused to read the various transfers of Saraki from his Guaranteed Trust Bank account to his American Express Service, New York account.

Wetkas had declined pointing out the various transfers as contained in the documents tendered before the tribunal, saying the transfers were many, hence details “may take the whole day.”

Following Wetkas response, Usoro started reading out the transfers with the witness admitting same.

According to Usoro, Saraki carried out the transfers from his GTB account to his American Express Bank, New York account.

This is the break down of the transfer, “March, 3, 2011, $30,656.74; February, 2, 2011, $32, 687; October, 18, 2010, $48,900; September, 2, 2010, $18,000; August, 32, 2010, $100,000; May 18, 2010, $134,000; Jan 21, 2010, $64,000; July 29, 2010, $80,984; August 26, 2011, $65,000; Jan, 27, 2012, $145,000;
