Governorship elections: Supreme Court suspends sitting as a panel member falls sick

Mon Jan 13th, 2020 - Adamawa

Nigeria’s Supreme Court Monday suspended the governorship appeals brought before it as one of the justices fell sick shortly after the court began sitting on Monday.

The seven-man panel was to hear and deliver judgment on appeals filed against Imo, Sokoto, Kano, Plateau, Bauch and Adamawa States.

The problem started with managing the surging crown trooping into the courtroom.

Efforts of the security officers to curtail the influx of lawyers, party members and families into the courtroom generated so much noise that the panel arose momentarily until the rowdiness was controlled.
