Ihedioha’s supporters troop to the streets of Owerri
Protesters trooped to the streets of Owerri, Imo state capital, on Sunday to kick against the verdict of the supreme court which led to the removal of Emeka Ihedioha as Imo state governor.
The Ihedioha’s supporter supporters were shouting “we want him back”.
The apex court had on Tuesday ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to return Hope Uzodinma, candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), as winner of the election.
Uzodinma placed a distant fourth in the results announced by INEC. But the apex court declared him winner based on the APC candidate’s claim that his votes across 388 polling units were annulled.
