Hon. Justice M. G. Umar, who gave the order in a suit filed by Kenneth O. Asekomhe and Hon. Mathew Aigbuhuenze Iduoriyekemwen, which has Oshiomhole, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and the Inspector General of Police (IGP) as defendants, restrained them from proceeding with the direct mode of primary election to select a candidate to fly the APC’s flag in the September gubernatorial election.
