Labour Party factions clash in court

Two factions of Labour Party clashed at the Presidential Election Petition Court (PEPC) over legal rights to be present in court, on Wednesday, in Abuja.

Members of both factions arrived early at Court of Appeal premises, where PEPC is sitting, even before the doors open.

Shortly after the courtroom opened and lawyers and litigants entered, there were loud voices in a corner reserved for party members attending the court session.
