The legal tussle between the Labour Party, Peoples Democratic Party and the ruling All Progressives Congress over the outcome of February 25 presidential election has taken a new dimension following report that a combined team of 89 Senior Advocates of Nigeria have been engaged.

Sources within the camp of the warring political parties said that the array of legal luminaries, drawn from different chambers, are presently being furnished with materials that could be tendered as evidence in court.

The PUNCH reported that APC candidate, Bola Tinubu, was announced the winner of the keenly contested election by the Independent National Electoral Commission.

But Atiku and Obi rejected the results announced by INEC, with each claiming at separate press conferences that the election was fraught with violence and massive rigging.

Few days later, Tinubu’s camp also sought the court permission to have access to examine the said electoral materials for the alleged illegality by the opposition.
