Osogbo - The President of the Court of Appeal, Justice Zainab Bulkachuwa has removed the chairman of Osun State Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal, Justice I. M. Bako.
Although no reason was given for Bako’s removal, political motives and intrigues are suspected to be behind Bulkachuwa’s decision to remove him, reports The Nation.
He was probably removed base a petition written against him by some people.
Bako’s removal and subsequent redeployment caught him and other members of the tribunal unawares as his redeployment was only communicated to him verbally on Wednesday.
His removal is coming barely two weeks after the tribunal commenced sitting.
