Lagos – A lawyer and a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Titiloye Charles has reportedly sued the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) over the postponement of the country's general elections.

According to a report by Sahara Reporters, Charles, who is also a human rights activist, filed the lawsuit at the Federal High Court, Akure, the Ondo state capital.

The country was scheduled to go to the polls on 14 February but INEC moved the vote to 28 March, citing security concerns.

Charles said he wanted the court to declare INEC's decision as null and void.

Charles further urged the court to declare that the head of INEC, Attahiru Jega had compromised the electoral body's independence and neutrality.
