This was disclosed by the National Legal Adviser of the PDP, Emmanuel Enoidem, SAN, and Atiku’s lawyer, Mike Ozekhome.

According to them, the party and the candidate jointly filed theier petition at the secretarial of the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal in Abuja.

They both spoke while exiting the tribunal’s secretariat situated at the Abuja division of the Court of Appeal on Monday evening.

Both lawyers gave hints about the content of the petition and their expectations at the tribunal.

Enoidem said: “We are here to present our joint petition for our party, the PDP and candidate our candidate. The last day for the petition is actually tomorrow, but we decided to file today.

“We asked that our candidate, who won the election massively across the country, be declared the winner of that election.

“In the alternative, we also asked that the election be set aside on the grounds of irregularities, which were very apparent across the country.

“We have a pool of 20 Senior Advocates of Nigeria (SANs), who are tested in election petition matters and other senior lawyers, who are also working with them.

“So we are very ready for the petition. The petition is well packaged. The depositions are well put together.

“More than 400 witnesses are going to testify in this petition. Nigerians are at home with what happened on February 23 in this country in relation to the sham they called election.

“Of course, we are going to re-present the facts to Nigerians, as the facts are already in the domain of Nigerians. We are not going to manufacture facts.

Ozekhome, who came out of the tribunal’s secretariat later, said he is a member of the petitioners’ legal team and that the petit on is “strong, solid and unassailable.”

He noted that, with only one day to the deadline for filing of the petition, the late filing was because the Independent National Electoral Commission failed to cooperate in terms of providing easy access to the electoral materials.

Ozekhome added: “We have up to tomorrow (Tuesday), to file but we have been having some challenges from the INEC itself in terms of assessing materials used during the elections. But I believe we will get there.

“Our petition is quite solid, strong unassailable and we believe that by the grace of God, the true keeper and owner of the mandate will have his mandate given to him.”

"My hands and legs were tied to the back, and suspended in between two tables by iron rod for like 1 hour 30 minutes. Then the Senior Police Officer, Abba Kyari, came around to tell me that I should say that it was the Senate President that gave us guns to rob Offa Banks. I told him my life is at stake here, and that I would not do such. Then, he said I should do that for them and that they will pay me, and thereafter set me free. I disagreed and was carried back to the cell on his instruction, as I could not walk”, he added.

Abba Kyari is the Police Officer who led the team that arrested the suspects. Kyari has also led his team to effect the arrests of other major crime suspects across Nigeria. Him and his team have however, been accused of human rights abuses and corruption, charges he has denied.

“I was shot on my two legs. I was later taken to Abba Kyari’s Office, where he asked to know if I was ready to cooperate and I said yes, and pleaded not to kill me. The next day was when Michael Adikwu was brought to identify us, and say what connected us together. The dismissed Officer said he did not know us, and after much torture, he was shot dead in our presence.”
