Court Dismisses Another Suit Against Tinubu Over Age, Citizenship

The Federal High Court in Abuja dismissed a lawsuit filed by the trio seeking to stop President-elect Bola Tinubu and his deputy Kashim Shettima from falsifying age and citizenship in documents submitted by Tinubu to the Independent National Electoral Commission.

In a ruling on Friday, Judge James Omotosho found the lawsuit by Praise Ilemona Isaiah, pastor Paul Isaac Audu and Anongu Moses to be frivolous and an abuse of court process.
