An FCT High Court sitting in Bwari has fixed Thursday, September 14, for a definite hearing of a motion seeking an order to commit the Chairman, Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, to prison over alleged disobedience to a court order.
It said the INEC boss continued to recognise Oye as the national chairman of APGA as against the court order.
When the matter was called on Monday, Ajara, who appeared for the plaintiffs, informed the court that the motion was ripped for hearing, having been served on INEC chairman on July 13 which the court verified from its records.
Justice Mohammed Madugu fixed the date following a committal charge that emanated from a suit marked: FCT/HC/CV/4068/2023 filed by counsel to the plaintiffs, Michael Ajara.
In the application, Oye and Mahmood were alleged to have flouted and ignored the court’s interim injunction of May 10, which ordered parties in the suit to maintain status quo ante bellum pending the determination of the substantive suit fixed for September 28.
