An atmosphere of gloom descended on the National Assembly on Tuesday as the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, faced trial at the Code of Conduct Tribunal in Abuja.
Activities at the National Assembly complex had been at low ebb since the trial saga commenced, with some workers wearing long faces.
Although the workers declined to speak with newsmen on the development, some of them were seen discussing the matter in groups.
No senator was seen at the premises while the car park was virtually empty.
However, aides of the senators could be seen collecting rams on behalf of the lawmakers for the upcoming sallah celebrations.
