There is an ongoing mass protest in some states of the federation against the verdict of the supreme court which led to the removal of Emeka Ihedioha as governor of Imo.

The apex court had on Tuesday sacked Ihedioha and ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to return Hope Uzodinma, candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), as winner of the election.

Uzodinma who came fourth in the results in the result announced by INEC was declared him the winner by the Supreme court upon his claim that his votes across 388 polling units were annulled.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had described the judgment as a miscarriage of justice and vowed to protest peacefully.

The opposition party also announced that it would carry out a protest in Abuja on Monday.

Meanwhile, below are photos from ongoing protests in Abia, Imo, Akwa Ibom and Ogun states.
