See the Supreme Court justice whose collapse stalled judgement on six states

By Sylvanus Okpe

The Supreme Court’s hearing into the appeal from the governorship election in six states was stalled on Monday, 12th of December 2020, following what was widely reported as the ill-health of one out of the seven members of the panel.

TheNigerian News had reported that the Appeal into the governorship election that held in Benue, Kano, Sokoto, Imo, Plateau and Adamawa states were adjourned till Tuesday following the ill-health of a member of the panel.

The name of the panelist had however remained unknown as the Apex court did not disclose which of the panelists’ ill-health had prompted the court into an adjournment even as all parties already littered the court premises with hoard of supporters in anticipation of the ruling.

An investigation carried out by TheNigerian News however, disclosed that Justice John Nyang Okoro, a member of the seven-man panel drafted to hear the appeal, had collapsed few minutes to the hearing, forcing the Court to call for an adjournment since it might be untenable for it to reach a majority judgement with an even number of judges on the panel.

A top member of the administrative unit of the Apex court who pleaded not to be mentioned, revealed to the political editor of the TheNigerian News that Justice John Nyang Okoro had collapsed few minutes to the hearing and was whisked out of the court room by the Chief Justice of Nigeria, CJN, Justice Ibrahim Tanko Muhammad and one of his close aides.

Our source also expressed worry that the judgement might not be delivered on the adjourned date, citing the deteriorating state of the justice’s health.
