The Senate President's senior adviser on new media, Bamikole Omisore accused Professor Sagay and Sowore of attempting to illegally influence the CCT judgement against Saraki.
Omisore went on to share an audio tape on Twitter which he claimed was the voice of Sagay, boasting that he made contact with the CCT judge as regards Saraki's trial.
NAIJ.com cannot independently verify the authenticity of this tape at the time of publishing this report.
Last week, NAIJ.com reported that Omisore and Sowore traded words on Twitter after the CCT dismissed the case against Saraki on Thursday, June 14 following his no-case submission on May 4.
Omisore had called Sowore a thief and blackmailer in a series of tweets after the Sahara Reporters publisher claimed that Saraki bribed the CCT chairman, Danladi Umar with $2 million to get off the hook in his case at the tribunal bordering on false declaration of assets.
Omisore also debunked the allegations and alleged that Sowore's was angered by his failed attempt to extort money from his boss.
The Senate President has since said he forgives everyone who had a hand in his trial and bore no grudge against anyone.
