The court upheld the appeal in a lead judgment delivered by Justice Centus Nweze on Friday, July 6 in Abuja.

The apex court ruled that there is insufficient proof to necessitate the trial before the CCT to proceed.

Legit.ng also reported that Senate president Bukola Saraki reacted to the Supreme Court judgement clearing him of all Code of Conduct Tribunal charges, saying he is happy he has been vindicated.

Saraki in a statement on Friday, July 6, claimed his corruption trial was politically motivated and that three years was wasted prosecuting him.

He insisted that he is not against the fight against corruption but that it should not be selective.
