Samuel Madojemu, Head, Intelligence Unit of the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB), told the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT), Thursday, that former Governor of Kwara State and Senate President, Bukola Saraki, made N77m cash on August 12, 2007, when he was still Governor of the state.
Then Saraki’s monthly salary as Governor was N254,412.25.
Madojemu was testifying as the third prosecution witness in the ongoing trial of Saraki before the CCT on charges of assets declaration breaches.
The former Kwara state is facing new amended 18-count charge.
At the resumption of the trial,Thursday, Saraki made his plea, where he denied all the allegations in the new charge.
He said his trial was politically-motivated, adding that the allegations included in the charge made “no sense” to him.
Saraki’s plea was immediately followed by the testimony of a prosecution witness, Madojemu.
Madojemu had earlier given evidence on February 8.
Outside the revelation that Saraki lodged huge sums of money in two days, he insisted that Saraki failed to capture his properties at No. 15a and 17a Macdonald street, Ikoyi, Lagos in the asset declaration form.
The witness said most of the documents tendered as exhibits were obtained by EFCC operatives and validated by the Bureau.
Meanwhile, Chairman of the Tribunal, Umar Danladi, adjourned trial till March 2.
