A Yobe State High Court sitting in Damaturu has granted an exparte order stopping one Alhaji Sani Inuwa Nguru from parading himself as the chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state pending the hearing of the plaintiffs/applicants’ motion.
This follows a suit filled by Lawan Gana Karasuwa, who is also laying claim to the position and 26 others.
The motion order No. YBS/DT/HC/33M/2017 also ordered the PDP, the Chairman PDP Caretaker Committee, the Inspector General of Police (IG), the Chairman INEC and the Director General of the State Security Services (SSS) and the Department of State Services (DSS) not to recognise or have any dealing with any person(s) apart from the plaintiffs/applicants until the motion on notice is heard.
“The 2nd-6th defendants are restrained/prohibited from recognising or dealing with other person(s) other than the plaintiffs/applicants pending the hearing and determination of the motion on notice,” the judge said.
