Obinwannem News Massive protest in Imo over the Supreme Court verdict

Thousands of Imolites have taken over the capital city, Owerri, in protest against the judgment of the Supreme Court on the Imo State Governorship election of March 9, 2019.

Ihedioha, a former Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives and governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the 2019 election was sacked by a panel of Supreme Court Justices headed by Justice Kudirat Kekere-Ekun, on technical grounds, while Hope Uzodinma was declared the winner.

Massive protests have since erupted and ongoing for the second day in a row with a large turnout of men and women all dressed in black.

Some of the protesters had banners and flyers, with different inscriptions; “We know who we voted for”, “Uzodinma should vacate Imo, government house”, “Tanko must pack and go”, among many others.
