The prosecution led by Rotimi Jacobs has tendered Assets Declaration Form of Nigeria’s senate president, Bukola Saraki as evidence and it has been accepted by the Code of Conduct Tribunal led by its chairman, Danladi Umar.

The defence as usual reserves its objection to the document.

Led in evidence by Jacobs, Michael Wetkas, the first prosecution witness said 15A Macdonald Ikoyi was bought from the Presidential Implementation Committee on sale of FG Properties in the name of Tiny Tee Ltd.

He told the court that the defendant declared 15A and 15B as his property, but when EFCC wrote to Presidential Committee to verify the property, they responded that from their records, the property is no 15, Mcdonald Ikoyi Lagos and another one is Flat 1-4 Macdonald, Ikoyi Lagos.

The letter to the Implementation Committee on Sale of Federal Government Properties from the Investigation team and their response was tendered in court.

The witness said Tiny Tee paid 75 per cent cost of the property which is N123, 750 million from the account of Skyview Properties in Access Bank, then Intercontinental Bank.

When asked by the prosecution counsel who is the owner of the company, Wetkas said Saraki has declared the Company as his own.

He however said the Implementation Committee could not provide a copy of the draft for the payment and Access Bank too could not get a copy of the draft, but instead they referred his team to the Skyview Properties Ltd account in Access Bank where the draft was cleared and also furnished his team with the certificate of the account and opening packages for the account.

Certificate of Identification, Account opening packages, draft for the payment tendered and accepted court.
