Stampede in Court as Hoodlums stone Judge out of courtroom in Bayelsa State

Hoodlums disrupted proceedings in the hearing of a suit into the disputed ward, local government, and state congresses of the All Progressive Congress (APC) at the Bayelsa State High Court.

The hoodlums were said to have been provoked over the alleged insistence of Justice Aganaba to hear the suit filed by Alex Blackson, seeking the order to set aside the disputed congresses of the APC held last year.

According to Daily Trust, the claimant, Alex Blackson, and his brother, Osom Blackson, were injured during the stampede in the courtroom, while the presiding Judge, Justice Nayai Aganaba, was stoned.

The Judge was later whisked to safety by his police orderly.

Some lawyers in the court were chased out, while those who came with the claimant were brutalised.
