A vacation Judge, Justice Nusrat Umar, gave the order in a suit brought before her in Birinin Kebbi, the state capital.

A Port Harcourt High Court had restrained Uche Secondus from parading himself as the National Chairman of the party and subsequently suspended his membership of the party.

But in the case, cited as KB/AC/M. 170/2021, Justice Umar said she was satisfied after reading the affidavit of the respondents.
