BREAKING: COURT SACKS EX-SPEAKER DOGARA FROM HOUSE OF REPS

A Federal High Court in Abuja has sacked Yakubu Dogara from the House of Representatives and declared his seat vacant.

The judge, D.U. Okorowo, on Friday, ruled that Mr Dogara’s defection from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC) was wrong and meant he should vacate the legislative seat.
