A fresh legal battle seeking to remove Aminu Tambuwal from office as the Governor of Sokoto State has begun on Monday at the Federal High Court in Abuja.

The renewed legal tussle is in compliance with a Supreme Court order of December the Ninth, 2016.

The plaintiff in the matter, Senator Umaru Dahiru, is seeking an order to nullify the return of Tambuwal as the governorship candidate of the All Progressive Congress for the twenty fifteen governorship election in Sokoto state.

However, defence counsels told the court they have filed counter motions and served same on the plaintiff to object to his attempt to amend the originating summons.

The case has been adjourned to the twenty eight of February.
