Enugu Court bars Minister from arresting APC Chairman

A High Court sitting in Enugu has stopped the Foreign Affairs Minister, Mr. Geoffrey Onyeama, from arresting the Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Enugu State, Dr. Ben Nwoye.

The Party Chairman, who addressed journalists on Monday, said he ran to the Court as a last option.

Reports said that the order was given by Justice K.I. Okpe while delivering ruling on Suit No. E/228/2020.

Two other APC officials, Barr. B.N. Nebe and Mr. Everistus Asadu are also joined as applicants.

Okpe said, “An order of interim injunction is hereby granted to the applicants, restraining the respondents whether by themselves, their agents, men, officers, or privies from arresting, detaining or in any manner restricting the applicant’s rights to personal liberty and freedom of movement pending the hearing and determination of the substantive suit on notice.”
