Breaking: Supreme Court Sacks Oduah, Uba as Senators

The Supreme Court has removed Stella Oduah and Andy Uba of the Peoples Democratic Party as lawmakers representing Anambra State.
It also ruled on the conflict between the PDP factions in the state.
The two national legislators who represent Anambra South and Anambra North senatorial zones, respectively, were said to have been put on judicial notice since December 7, 2015, by the Court of Appeal Tribunal sitting in Enugu, in the details of its ver­dict in the matter between Sena­tor Uche Ekwunife vs Chief Vic­tor Umeh.
According to the Court of Appeal, Ekwunife was not a product of any known valid party primary.
Incidentally, she was on the same political page of ‘nomination’ with Uba and Odu­ah, the verdict on the legal tus­sle over the source and manner of their emergence has been pend­ing and fixed for today, Friday, January 29, at the Su­preme Court.

Details later.
