Supporters of the All Progressives Congress (APC) have been barred from entering the court in a move to prevent overcrowding.
Naija News reports that the APC faithful were prevented by officials of the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja. The APC members came to witness the ruling of Justice Ahmed Mohammed on the alleged certificate forgery case filed against Edo Governor, Godwin Obaseki.
It was also learned that scores of visitors and journalists who came to the court were also barred from entering the court.
This news platform gathered that the visitors were told that the restriction order was from the judge. According to a police officer, only counsels in the case, party members, and journalists are allowed in.
Some of the visitors also claimed that they were frustrated as they came from Benin to witness the case.
However, many who were stranded outside the court expressed displeasure at the directive.
