The Supreme Courtroom has fined attorneys representing David Lyon and the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the software for evaluation of the apex court’s judgement on Bayelsa election. Justice Afe Babalola represented Mr Lyon while Wole Olanipekun represented the APC.

 

Though providing judgement in the application submitted by the occasion, Justice Amina Augie who experienced tears in her eyes, explained she regretted that “very senior” legal professionals ended up liable for filing the purposes.

 

The Supreme court justices dominated that each and every of the attorneys must pay back N10 million to each individual of the 3 respondents – the Peoples Democratic Party, Governor Duoye Diri, and the Deputy Governor of Bayelsa Point out, Lawrence Ewhruojakpo, bringing the full amount of money to be paid to N60 million.

 

A 7-man panel of the apex courtroom led by Justice Sylvester Ngwuta described the programs submitted by the APC and Lyon, as “vexatious, frivolous, and constituted a gross abuse of courtroom system.”
