The Court of Appeal sitting in Benin, Edo State, has struck out appeals by Senator Ovie Omo-Agege and Rev. Francis Waive, seeking the leave of court to challenge the judgement of the Federal High Court, Asaba, which nullified their elections.

Justice Philomena Mbua Ekpe in her ruling dismissed both applications for lacking in merit and fined them N300,000 each.
The court held that the plaintiffs could not claim to be unaware of the case thus could not seek to be joined or challenged the judgement, at this moment.
Omo-Agage and Waive have to wait for the party at the National level who are party to the case to appeal the judgement.
