Abuja - Five fresh cases have been filed at various courts across the country to either prevent the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) from conducting the 2015 general elections or stop the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Muhammadu Buhari from participating in the presidential poll, reports Sahara Reporters.

The fresh cases are allegedly being sponsored by close associates and confidants of President Goodluck Jonathan.

With the fresh cases, the number of cases filed aiming to abort the 2015 election has increased to 10.
