The Use Of The Armed Forces To Conduct Elections Is Illegal - Court Of Appeal

The Appeal Court in Abuja has held that the use of Armed Forces to conduct elections is a violation of the nineteen ninety nine constitution and the Electoral Act.

The Court therefore barred the use of the military in the conduct of future elections in the country.

The appellate court held that whoever unleashed soldiers on Ekiti for the June twenty first, twenty fourteen governorship election violated the constitution.

The court was delivering judgment in the appeal by the APC against the election of Governor Ayo Fayose.
