The trial of the President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, his deputy, Ike Ekweremadu and others at an Abuja Federal Capital Territory, FCT, High court sitting in Jabi was on Monday stalled due to the ongoing vacation of judicial workers.

Saraki, Ekweremadu, former clerk of the National Assembly, Salisu Maikasuwa and the Deputy clerk, Benedict Efeturi are facing two count charges of alleged criminal conspiracy and forgery of the senate standing rules, 2015, made against them by the Federal Government (FG).

Saraki, alongside others who arrived the court earlier, had to return back after been told of the break.

Recall that the court, presided over by Justice Yusuf Halilu had on June 27 granted all accused persons bail after they pleaded not guilty to the two-count charge.

However, the court could not sit today because the judiciary was on vacation, which is expected to last until September.
