Saraki’s counsel, Paul Usoro was about to commence his cross examination of the EFCC Prime Witness, Michael Wetkass, when the Tribunal Chairman said, ” I am not happy at the delay tactics by the defense counsel will not affect the consequences of this tribunal”

At this stage, the lead defense counsel, Kanu Agabi got up and asked the chairman what he meant by the consequences of the tribunal. He further told the tribunal chairman that he and his client are worried over ‘assumed prejudices’
Agabi cautioned that he is afraid that the defense team is against assumed prejudices as it is against justice.

“We are actually afraid of the final consequences. We really are, and all that we are doing is because we are scared of the final consequences.

“Now, it is time for us to disabuse the minds of the court. Please bear with us. We are not worried about the law. We are worried about the prejudice. We are not afraid of you. I pray for you everyday that your lordship sits here for many more years‎,‎” he said.
