Written by on September 29, 2022

Justice Daniel Osiagor of the Federal High Court sitting in Lagos has ordered the Labour Party and its supporters not to converge on the Lekki toll gate for its #Obidatti23 Forward Ever Rally billed to hold on the 1st of October, 2022.

The court also directed the Inspector General of Police(IGP), Usman Baba, and the Lagos State Police Commissioner, Abiodun Alabi, to ensure compliance with the order.

Justice Daniel made the order on Wednesday while ruling on a motion for injunction brought by 10 plaintiffs, who are asking the court to, among others, restrain the LP, its presidential candidate Peter Obi, his running mate Datti Baba-Ahmed, one Julius Abure and their loyalists from holding the rally.

Tribune reports that the court adjourned the hearing of the substantive suit to November 4, 2022.
