The supporters of Peter Obi, the Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate in the last general election, are threatening to unleash terror on the daughter of Haruna Tsammani, the lead justice of the Presidential Election Petition Court.

Obi’s supporters, popularly known as Obidients, threatened to besiege the Abuja-based clothing line allegedly owned by one of Justice Tsammani’s daughters in response to concerns that the election petition judgement might not be in their favour.

In May, the court started hearing the petitions against the result declared by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) after the February 25 presidential election. The LP and other opposition parties are among the petitioners.

Since Justice Tsammani was announced as the chairman of the tribunal, there have been concerns about his integrity and that of the other justices on the panel.

In a tweet on Monday, @General_Oluchi wrote:

“Justice Tsammani’s daughter owns a clothing line in Wuye, Abuja. Those are really nice pieces, and I thought to go shopping this morning but talked myself out of it. I said, “Oluchi, it’s too early to go shopping and Obidients might want to join you too, so why not wait until after the Tribunal?” Let’s call her “Zainab” (not real name). Zainab, if you are reading, please tell daddy to give us a judgment date quickly so we can begin shopping! We don’t have eternity to waste on this case…and I know you’ve been to this account and can read this. Kudos to all Obidients sniffing around the internet and putting these good tips together.”

Another tweep said that if the judgement favoured the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Obidients would give the justice’s daughter “the highest shopping customers treat”.

“Please o, is it male or female abi unisex, cause I really want to shop. Also, does [anyone] have a space where I can keep the 2 by 2 stick that I am holding while I shop?” @sammyprimus1 wrote.

While no exact day has been announced by the tribunal, there are indications that judgment will be delivered in the coming weeks.

On Tuesday, Olalekan Fadolapo, the Director-General of the Advertising Regulatory Council of Nigeria (ARCON), ordered an immediate dissolution of the Advertising Standard Panel (ASP) over a harmless ‘All Eyes on the Judiciary’ billboard mounted in the Federal Capital Territory.

The federal advertising authority further stated that the officials responsible for the vetting and approval of the content had been suspended to enable an investigative committee to look into the approval process.
