Senate President Bukola Saraki entered the courtroom of the Code of Conduct Tribunal at exactly 9.55 am to the subdued excitement of his supporters.
Dressed in sparkling white guinea brocade, he was accompanied by a retinue of Senators who quickly filled up the five benches reserved for them.
Shouts of “Nooo!” as Saraki shakes Jacobs
Before taking his seat, the Senate President went to greet his defence counsel led by Kanu Agabi (SAN).
However after shaking Agabi, the Senate President extended his hand to Jacobs, the lead prosecuting counsel. The gesture was met with loud, simultaneous disapproval of “Nooo!” by his supporters.
The Senate President quickly withdrew his hand from Jacobs. He is now seated waiting for the commencement of the trial.
