There was an explosion yesterday morning at the Federal High court sitting in Rivers state as Justice Lambo Akanbi nullified the election of 22 local government areas conducted by the Rotimi Amaechi administration on May 23rd. In the said election, APC won all the seats while PDP members boycotted the election after complaining of electoral fraud by members of the APC.

Justice Lambo Akanbi in his ruling stated that the decision of the former governor, Chibuike Amaechi’s administration to go ahead with the council election on May 23 inspite of a court order asking all parties to maintain status quo, was a flagrant abuse of court process and disregard for the rule of law. He afterwards nullified the elections of the 22 Local government chairmen.
