Court Sacks Councillor In Kogi


A High Court sitting in Kabba, has ordered the removal of the councillor representing Asuta Ward in Kabba-Bunu local government area of Kogi State, Ayo Kajotoni.

The judge also ordered Kogi State Independent Electoral Commission (KOSIEC) to issue a certificate of return to the claimant, Barr. Segun Dare.
