Appeal Court sacks 3 PDP lawmakers in Plateau

The court further sacked Hon. Agbalak Adukuchill Ibrahim of PDP, and returned APC’s Eli Bako Ankala, to represent Rukuba/Irigwe Constituency.

Similarly, the court dismissed Hon. Rimvjat Nanbol of PDP, and returned Hon. Daniel Ninbol Listic of Labour Party (LP) to represent Langtang North Central, state constituency.
