Ohanaeze Ndigbo Faction Seeks Court Restrain Order Against Obiozor Led Faction
Obiajulu Joel Nwolu

A faction of the apex Igbo socio-cultural group, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, led by Uche Okwukwu, has asked a High Court sitting in Abuja to restrain Professor George Obiozor, who was elected by the Nnia Nwodo-led Ohanaeze from parading himself as the President General or be jailed.

Recall that Obiozor who was an erstwhile Nigerian ambassador to the United State, Israel and Cyprus, was elected President of the group at the Dan Anyim Stadium in Owerri, Imo State on January 10.

Okechukwu in a motion on notice number FCT/HC/BIU/M/14/21 sought an order restraining Obiozor and his proxies from parading as President of the group pending the determination of the substantive suit.

The notice partly read, “An order of this honourable court restraining the defendants, its agent servants from further holding or summoning any meeting whatsoever of Ohanaeze Ndigbo without consultation with the Secretary General as the constitution demands.

“An order of this honourable court restraining Professor George Obiozor from parading himself as the President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, being a product of an illegal election in Owerri on the 10th day of January, 2021.”

In the same vein, the Uche Okwukwu faction in an originating summons is asking for the interpretations of articles 10, 11, 14 and 21 of Constitution of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, brought pursuant to order 2 Rules 1, 3 and 4 of the Federal High Court of the Federal Capital Territory (Civil Procedure) Rules 2018 and section 6(6B) of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

The suit will be heard on 21th January, 2021.
