In another twist to the Imo state saga, sacked Emeka Ihedioha is set to approach the Supreme Court.

He said that with this, democratic means of ensuing justice will also be explored.

Recall that the Supreme Court had held that INEC unlawfully excluded votes from over 300 polling units, the addition of which made the candidate of the APC, Hope Uzodinma to be declared as the governor of Imo by the court.

Omole said he fully agreed with the Supreme Court verdict that Uzodinma was unfairly treated by the lower courts which had held that his petition lacked merits.

According to the legal expert, INEC should have produced the original result of the votes in the affected polling units if it claimed that the results presented by Uzodinma's witness were fake.

Omole said INEC agreed that voting took place in the affected units but failed to present its official results to counter the ones presented by Uzodinma's witness.
