There was palpable tension in Osogbo on Wednesday, May 18, as unusually heavy security were present at the entrance and premises of the Federal High Court sitting in the state capital.
Telescope.ng gathered that Justice Nathaniel Ayo-Emmanuel is expected to rule on the suit challenging the eligibility of Senator Ademola Adeleke as the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the July 16 Osun governorship poll.
It would be recalled that a chieftain of the party, Prince Dotun Babayemi, had approached the court, asking it to invalidate the primary election that produced Adeleke as the PDP candidate.
At the entrance to the premises of the court, four Hilux vans belonging to the police were manned by heavily armed operatives.
The operatives deployed also had a hectic time controlling heavy human movement into the court.
Besides the courtroom that was filled up, many supporters of the two parties in the matter also sat outside the courtroom.
Justice Ayo-Emmanuel had commenced reading his judgement.
