Hassan, representing the Concerned Stakeholders of Lagos West Senatorial District had petitioned the chairman of the tribunal, Justice S. C. Oriji, alleging that the team of APC lawyers led by Dr. Muiz Banire conspired with both INEC lawyers and officials of the tribunal to steal vital documents which were duly tendered as evidence and the same was published in Daily Independent Newspaper as well as on the social media.

Adeola’s counsel, Kunle Adegoke had file a contempt case against Barrister Hassan and at the last sitting of the Tribunal, Justice Oriji ordered that a retraction of the false allegation be published by Daily Independent before he can rule on the culpability and possible sanction for the erring lawyer.
