The tribe of Nigerian senators accompanying their leader, Bukola Saraki, facing trial for false asset declaration, is shrinking.
Today, there were fewer than 12 senators in Saraki’s company when he arrived at 10:05am in the company of at least 12 senators.
Some of the senators are Ike Ekweremadu, deputy senate president; Sam Anyanwu, Dino Melaye, and Andy Uba.
This is the lowest number of senators to accompany him to the CCT since the beginning of his case in September 2015 – the highest being 81, the Cable reports.
Also, this is the second day of his trial which started on Tuesday.
Although this is the eighth time the senate president will appear at the CCT, his trial actually started on Tuesday.
