A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has transferred the case filed by the Nigerian Police Force against 23 officials of the Independent Electoral Commission to the Port Harcourt division of the court.
 
In transferring the case, Justice John Tsoho said the argument of the police that the insecurity in Rivers State will affect the trial was not tenable.
 
He added that there was no evidence placed before the court to how pervasive insecurity in Rivers State.
