The PUNCH also learnt that about 150 out of the 750 had voted at the time of filing this report.

The Presiding Officer also added that the voters had volunteered to use their money to buy ink.

 Court of Appeal Abuja Division on Friday dismissed an appeal by the suspended Deputy Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari, to reverse an earlier ruling of the Abuja Federal High Court refusing his request for bail.

In a unanimous judgment, the three-member panel led by Justice Stephen Adah dismissed the application because it lacked merit.

The court held that given the nature of the charges pending against him and the other defendants before the High Court, such bail requests needed to be handled with caution.

Justice Adah held that Justice Emeka Nwite, who earlier rejected bail for Kyari at the Abuja Federal High Court, appropriately exercised his discretion in refusing to grant Kyari bail.
