The Code of Conduct of Tribunal has warned against posting video clips of its proceedings on social media.
The Chairman of the tribunal, Danladi Umar, gave the warning at the resumed proceedings on Wednesday.
Mr. Umar said the tribunal would not hesitate to apply the full weight of the law against the culprits.
A video clip of the judge’s heated exchange with a lawyer representing the senate presiddent, Bukola Saraki, was published last week on the internet.
Mr. Saraki is currently on trial for alleged corruption.
According to Justice Umar, those who posted the video did so with the sole purpose of misleading the public about the actual happening in the tribunal.
He said the CCT would discuss with both the prosecution and defence counsel on possibility of inviting NTA, AIT, and Channels for a live telecast to avoid misrepresentation.
Mr. Umar also directed that all security personnel carrying arms to vacate the courtroom.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that there was high presence of armed security personnel within and outside the CCT.
