I was not attacked in my constituency - Says Senator Misau

There had been a lot of controversial statements earlier today of the staunch supporter of Senate president, Bukola Saraki, being attacked by angry youths when he visited his Ningi constituency in Bauchi state.

In an interview on Monday, however, the chairman, Senate committee on Navy, said that he visited his area on Saturday, but was never attacked as suggested by the social media reports. 

According to Information Nigeria, he said: “I was in Ningi and other parts of my constituency on Saturday but I wasn’t attacked by anybody. 

“No Senator will wear such items because as Senators we go for qualitative items that befit our status. The cap is not a quality one, it is not more than N1,500 and so also the shoe. 

“Go and check the video clips of our sittings and see whether you will see me wearing such kind of items.

” Earlier today, about 43 documents were presented against Saraki in court following the continuation of his corruption trial at the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT). 

Some of these documents include account statements, cheques, letters and Code of Conduct Bureau forms. 

Michael Wetkas, a detective of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), however claimed that Bukola Saraki, the Senate president, did not declare some of his assets at the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB). 

He added that Saraki acquired more than one property from a Presidential Implementation Committee on landed property, which he said was against the rule.
