The Court of Appeal sitting in Benin City, the Edo State capital has nullified the election victory of Senator Ighoyota Amori in the Delta Central Senatorial District.
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Senator lost the seat to Ovie-omo Agege of the Labour Party on Sunday.
The five-man panel led by Justice Abba Aji upturned an earlier ruling in favour of Senator Amori and held that Ovie-omo Agege be sworn in as winner of the election into the upper chamber of the National Assembly.
With the Appeal Court’s judgment, there are two PDP Senators representing Delta State at the National Assembly.
Mr Agege is a former secretary to the Delta State Government and a Chieftain of the PDP until his defection from the part.
