Bomb Blast In Port Harcourt High Court During Election Tribunal Hearings

A bomb exploded outside a court in Port Harcourt, as judges were deliberating on the regularity of local elections.

No one was injured in the blast, which did not disrupt the proceedings that saw the federal high court dissolve the 22 local councils.

“I think they were trying to disrupt the result… the high court decided that the election was illegal,” Governor Nyesom Wike said, Reuters reported.
“It [the blast] was close to the high court, nobody was killed and it didn’t affect the building.”
