There was pandemonium in the Court of Appeal in Benin City yesterday as suspected thugs allegedly supported by persons in security outfit uniforms, invaded the courtroom, chased away court workers and carted away several documents.

It was gathered that some lawyers had approached the Appellate court to file an appeal arising from a judgment of the State High Court on issues relating to the crisis rocking the Peoples’ Democratic Party in Edo State.

The crisis concerned whose faction of the party loyal to the governor of the state, Godwin Obaseki and the Vice Chairman, South-South of the party, Chief Dan Orbih, have the authentic delegates list to participate in the party’s primary elections.

The Head of Department, Litigation of the court, Dennis Ayama confirmed the incident.
