Saraki refused to appear in person as ordered by the code of conduct tribunal but was represented by his lawyer, Mahmud Magaji. It appears he is hiding behind the directive by a federal high court asking the Tribunal and Saraki to appear for justification of the case on Monday.
Consequently, the federal government prosecuting counsel, M.S. Hassan, has asked the court to with immediate effect issue a bench warrant for the arrest of Saraki.
More details coming.
