Some members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Osun State on Thursday stormed the premises of the state high court, raising an alarm over the alleged disbandment of the 3-man election petition tribunal.
The panel was set up to adjudicate complaints arising from the conduct of the September 22 governorship election.
When newsmen arrived at the court premises, it was observed that the doors leading to the courtroom were under lock and key while the registry of the election tribunal was also shut.
One of the counsels to Senator Ademola Adeleke, the PDP candidate, Mr Niyi Owolade, told journalists that they came for the hearing of an application on substituted service but were told by court officials that the panel had been disbanded.
When contacted to speak on the matter the court registrar, Lawrence Arojo, declined to speak to the press.
