Kano High Court Orders Oshiomhole Back To Office

A Federal High Court sitting in Kano on Thursday reversed the ruling of the FCT High Court which temporarily suspended Comrade Adams Oshiomhole as the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Justice Lewis Allagoa who set aside the ruling thereafter ordered the police and Department of State Service (DSS) to provide security for Oshiomhole, to enable him to return to his office.

Recall that Justice Danlami Senchi of the FCT high court in Abuja on Wednesday delivered a ruling on an application for an interlocutory injunction where he ordered Oshiomhole to be suspended pending the determination of the main suit seeking his permanent removal.

The court held that the party wrongfully continued to retain him as its National Chairman while he is under suspension as a member of the party.

The judge, therefore, ordered the chairman of the APC to stop parading himself as the National Chairman of the party and directed the party to cease acknowledging him in that regard.

He also ordered the party to deny him access to the party secretariat. Which prompted the Nigerian Police to take over the APC Secretariat building thereafter.
