A Federal High court sitting in Abuja has sacked the former speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Yakubu Dogara, declaring his seat vacant.

The judge, D.U Okorowo on Friday ruled that Dogara’s defection from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC) was inappropriate and ordered him to vacate the legislative seat.
