The Court of Appeal, Abuja Division, has sacked Regina Daniels husband Ned Nwoko as the senator representing Delta North Senatorial District.
This is coming just few days after he got traditionally married to actress Regina Daniels whose father say is 17-years old.
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.
Ruling also that the case had become statute barred and that the lower court lacked jurisdiction to entertain the matter because of the failure of the applicant at the lower court to file the case before the expiration of 14 days
"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.
