El-Zakzaky

The Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN), has explained why its leader Ibraheem El-Zakzaky and his wife Zeenat returned to Nigeria from India barely days after going for treatment.

According to reports, the couple made the decision to return, following an ultimatum given by the Indian government.

The Shiites leader had expressed his desire to return to Nigeria if he was not granted access to doctors known to him.

El-Zakzaky had earlier cried out over the situation in India, stating that it was worse than what he and his wife experienced in Nigeria.

“Based on these experiences, he refused to be treated and the ultimatum was issued him to either reverse his decision or leave India. He chose to return home rather than being treated like a criminal in a medical facility in India,” a source said.

Recall that the federal government urged Nigerians to disregard the cry by the IMN leader, El-Zakzaky, that he was being held in circumstances worse than he was in Nigeria.

Breaking: Supreme Court Uphold Judgement On Bayelsa State***Slams N10 Million Cost On Lyon’s Legal Team

Published

Judgement

 

The Supreme Court has delivered its judgment on the application for review of an earlier judgment which sacked David Lyon, as governor-elect of Bayelsa State.

 

Delivering its judgment, the Supreme Court upheld its sacking of  Lyon who represented the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the gubernatorial election.

 

It also sacked the deputy governor-elect of the state, Senator Biobarakuma Degi-Eremienyo, while dismissing the application for review of the judgment.

 

Justice Amina Augie who read the judgment stated that the application lacks merit, adding that the decisions of the court are final.

She added that the applicants failed to point out errors, stating that the judgment is final for all ages.

The apex court judge said the judgment is final in the ‘real sense’ and no court on earth can review the judgment.

“There must be an end to litigation even if we review this judgment, every disaffected litigant will bring similar applications and the finality of Supreme Court judgments will be lost.”

She added that the applications are frivolous and vexatious, and awarded the cost of N10 million against the applicants to be personally paid by their counsel.

Recall that Lyon was sacked by the apex court on February 13, barely 24 hours to his inauguration.

A five-member panel of the apex court led by Justice Mary Odili nullified Lyon’s election on the grounds that his deputy, Biobarakuma Degi-Eremienyo, presented false information to the Independent National Electoral Commission(INEC) to aid his qualification for the November 16 governorship election in State.

Subsequently, the court ordered INEC to declare the party with the highest number of lawful votes and geographical spread the winner of the election. The candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Douye Diri, was later sworn in as governor.

This was sequel to a suit filed by the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP), Douye Diri, against the APC candidates and INEC, seeking the disqualification of the APC deputy governorship candidate.
