The Supreme Court has suspended the hearing of the governorship appeals from six states of the Federation.

 

The Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice TANKO MUHAMMAD, gave the order following the inability of the security operatives to control the crowd and the noise level in the court.

 

Justice MUHAMMAD had led a seven-man panel of justices hearing the appeals from the governorship elections in Imo, Bauchi, Sokoto, Kano, Plateau and Benue States.

 

 

But the court rose some minutes after the hearing commenced due to the crowd and the noise level in the court.

 

The governors returned elected by the Independent National Electoral Commission in the states are EMEKA IHEDIOHA of Imo, BALA MOHAMMED of Bauchi, AMINU TAMBUWAL of Sokoto, ABDULLAHI GANDUJE Kano, SIMON LALONG of Plateau, and SAMUEL ORTOM Benue.
