The National and State Assembly election petitions tribunal sitting in Umuahia, Abia State, has nullified the election of Senator Orji Uzor Kalu.

The three-man tribunal led by Justice Cornelius Akintayo, ordered the supplementary election while giving judgment in a petition brought before it by the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the election, Mao Ohuabunwa, who had challenged the victory of the Senate Chief Whip, Orji Kalu, in the senatorial election.

Kalu was declared winner of the election by the returning officer, Dr. Charles Anumudu, which Ohuabunwa described as “excess electoral fraud and broad daylight robbery.”
