There is serious unrest in Lafia, the capital city of Nasarawa State, moments after the Supreme Court gave its final verdict on the governorship election dispute.

Streams of protesters flooded the street and Lafia -Jos highway to protest the apex Court’s verdict that ruled in favour of the incumbent, Abdullahi Sule.

Reports gathered from the scene confirmed that shop owners and other businesses have been shut down as the protesters obstructed the road creating a blockade by setting bonfires to impede travellers and other motorists.

Recall earlier today, the Supreme Court upheld the Court’s of Appeal’s ruling that nullifying Governor Sule’s election was invalid.

In a unanimous decision by Five-member panel, the apex Court confirmed the victory of Governor Abdullahi Sule from All Progressives Congress (APC) in the gubernatorial election held on March 18, 2023.
