Youths in Bayelsa State have taken to the streets to protest the decision of the Supreme Court to sack governor-elect, David Lyon.

Protesting the decision, the youths burnt items on the road on Tombia junction in Bayelsa.

The Justice Mary Odili-led Supreme Court on Thursday nullified Lyon’s emergence, ruling that his deputy, Senator Biobarakhma Degi-Eremienyo falsified information presented to INEC.

Lyon was expected to be sworn-in on Friday but the decision leaves many guessing on who would be sworn-in if the inauguration holds as scheduled.

INEC has said that they are yet to receive the Supreme Court judgement on the matter.

The protesting youths chanted “No David Lyon, No Governor!”
