A Federal High Court sitting in Lagos has ordered supporters of Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, not to converge at the Lekki Toll-Gate during their rally scheduled on October 1.
The court gave the ruling on Wednesday ahead of the #ObiDatti23 Forward Ever Rally scheduled to hold this Saturday in Lagos.
According to the court, Peter Obi supporters can pass through the Toll-Gate for its rally but must not converge on the facility.
The presiding Judge, Justice Daniel Osiagor, then directed the Inspector-General of Police, Usman Baba, and the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Abiodun Alabi, to make sure the order was compiled.
The judge gave the judgment while ruling on a Motion for Injunction brought by 10 plaintiffs, including nine lawyers.
They had asked the court to, among others, restrain the LP, its presidential candidate, Peter Obi, his running mate, Yusuf Baba-Ahmed, one Julius Abure, and their loyalists from holding the rally.
The court had Friday last week adjourned the matter to September 28 for the hearing of the Motion.
