There is tight security at the Federal High Court, Umuahia, where the Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal will give its judgement.
The tribunal is set to deliver judgment today in the petitions filed by the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, candidate, Chief Okey Ahiwe; and his All Progressives Congress, APC, counterpart, High Chief Ikechi Emenike, against the victory of Gov. Alex Otti of the Labour Party.
Everybody accessing the court premises was subjected to screening by a combined team of security operatives.
Journalists have little space for them as the courtroom is filled to capacity.
