Abuja Indigenes Block FCT Minister’s Gate Over Failure To Swear In Council Chairmen

By Jimoh Ismail

There was pandemonium today as some indigenes of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, besieged the minister’s gate to protest over his refusal to swear in the newly elected Council chairmen and councillors as earlier ordered by an FCT High Court sitting at Bwari and presided over by Justice Mohammed Ibrahim.

The judge had on Thursday issued a contrary order from his earlier judgment which he later admitted to be faulty.

As the time of filing this report, nobody was permitted to either go out or come into the premises as the angry protesters insisted that the court order must be implemented by the minister, Bello Muhammad.
