Protesters dump coffin in front of Calabar tribunal

Scores of dissidents on Wednesday took to the roads of Calabar, Cross River State, requesting the quick suspension of the President of the Court of Appeal, Justice Zainab Bulkachuwa.

Communicating their grievances, the nonconformists numbering around 200 dumped an empty coffin at the front of the tribunal as they moved, sang and yelled hostile to tribunal and against Bulkachuwa trademarks.

Working under the aegis of the Cross River State Diocese of Wesley Synod International African Foundation, and the College of Clergies in Politics, Cross River State section, the nonconformists said they were communicating their anger over the way the National/State Assemblies Election Petitions Tribunal (Panel 1) was “delibrately” constituted to guarantee that the petitions against Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) competitors never got equity.

The dissidents who amassed at MCC by Murtala Muhammed Highway in the morning conveyed a vacant coffin, bulletins and green leaves and walked from that point through to the front of the tribunal where they dumped the coffin as they were kept from getting entrance to the premises of the Industrial Court where the tribunal seats by the police.

The security specialists banished writers and journalists from having admittance to the premises of the tribunal.

The policemen later removed the coffin and the flags.
