Supreme Court verdict sparks riot in Nasarawa

Protest has broken out in Lafia, Nasarawa State capital, following the Supreme Court verdict which affirmed the election of Governor Abdullahi Sule in the March 18, 2023 election in the state.

“The Lafia-Jos road has been completely blocked as the protesters lit bonfire to prevent travelers and other road users,” says a Daily Trust report.

The paper says that its correspondent who was at the scene of the protest, reports that motorists had to take alternative routes out of Lafia.

“An automobile mechanic, Mallam Dogo Audu, called for the deployment of more security operatives to restore calm and avert escalation.
