The Court of Appeal has sacked spokesman of the Nigerian Senate, Adedayo Adeyeye, as the lawmaker representing Ekiti South senatorial district in the upper chamber of legislature.

Adeyeye, a former spokesman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

The appellant court declared Senator Biodun Olujimi of the PDP winner of the election.
