Two lawyers who were alleged to have rigged the August 2018 Nigerian Bar Association, NBA national elections have been charged to court by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission EFCC.
In a fourteen count charge filed before the federal high court, Lagos against the duo Sarah Ajibola, and John Demide, on May 15th the anti-graft agency accused them of manipulating the 2018 election in favour of the incumbent President of the NBA Paul Usoro.
The suit is yet to be assigned to a judge.
