Few days after Ned Nwoko got traditionally married to his actress wife Regina Daniels whose father says is aged 17.  The Court of Appeal, Abuja Division, has sacked  Ned Nwoko as the senator representing Delta North Senatorial District.

Premium Imes reports that the court in a decision on Thursday said the case instituted at the Abuja Division of the Federal High Court which resulted in the recognition of Mr Nwoko as the winner of the election by the Independent National Electoral Commission was wrongly filed

The Court of Appeal ruled that the matter ought to have been tabled before the lower court before the expiration of 14 days from the time of the incidence that birthed the suit

This online news platform understands that the Appeal Court ruled that the failure of the applicant at the lower court to file the case before the expiration of 14 days meant that the case had become statute barred and the lower court lacked jurisdiction to entertain the matter in the first place.

“As at the time the matter was instituted at the Federal High Court, the case was statute barred. We set aside the decision of the Federal High Court and strike out the case,” the court ruled.

However, the court ruling today means Nwaoboshi will now be recognised as the senator-elect for the district.
