In an open display of bias, the chairman of the Code of Conduct Tribunal, Danladi Umar yesterday threw caution to the air, when he said that the ‘delay tactics’ by Abubakar Saraki’s lawyers will in no way affect the consequences of the Code of Conduct Tribunal.
This is simply an indication that the tribunal has made up it’s mind to convict Saraki at all cost.
Saraki’s counsel, Paul Usoro was about to commence his cross examination of the EFCC Prime Witness, Michael Wetkass, when the Tribunal Chairman opened up He said, ” I am not happy at the delay tactics by the defense counsel will not affect the consequences of this tribunal”
At this stage, the lead defense counsel, Kanu Agabi got up and asked the chairman what he meant by the consequences of the tribunal. He further told the tribunal chairman that he and his client are worried over ‘assumed prejudices’
Agabi cautioned that he is afraid that the defense team is against assumed prejudices as it is against justice.
