APC: Judge returns case file to CJ of Rivers State - ITREALMS

ITREALMS ... making leadership SENSE with digital news!

The leadership of All Progress Congress (APC) in Rivers State has suffered a setback with the return of case file to the Chief Judge of Rivers State on the case between the party and Ogechi Ogwu Edwin and others, reports 
ITREALMS.
The Legal Adviser, APC, Rivers State, Iheanyichukwu Zubi Dike, Esq. described it as a ploy to destract the party leadership by some imposters and naysayers who are bent on fanning the embers of discord within our great party.
According to Dike in a press statement available to 
ITREALMS, "It is no longer news that Magnus Abe’s group, a group funded and sponsored by Governor Wike to destabilize Rivers APC, for the umpteenth time, suffered a huge blow today as the trial/presiding Judge, Honourable Justice, I.R. Minakiri recused himself from the matter today and returned the case to my Lord, the Honourable Chief Judge of Rivers State, Honourable Justice S.C. Amadi.

"You may appreciatively recall that the outwitted Governor Wike through his puppet, Magnus Abe and some of his stooges OGECHI OGWU EDWIN and others had approached the Rivers State High Court in Suit No. PHC/1955/CS/2021 seeking for an interlocutory injunction against the erstwhile Rivers State APC Caretaker Committee. The palace jesters sought, among other reliefs, an order of the Honorable Court to set aside the Congress of our party, the All Progressives Congress, APC, Rivers State.

"The Learned trial Judge presiding over the matter, Hon Justice I. R. Minakiri in his infinite wisdom withdrew from the matter after a painstaking perusal of the case files.

"My Lord had already adjourned the matter to the 24th day of February, 2022 for Judgment before he recused himself from the suit for reasons not unconnected to some external pressure by Magus Abe and Governor Wike who are bent on using the judicial process as an instrument of political subterfuge.

"The witty Learned trial Judge returned the case file to the Chief Judge of the state while washing his hands off the matter just like Pontius Pilate.

"Similarly, Justice Minakiri also withdrew from a sister suit from the same camp instituted by one Alaibo Soibibo & 3 Ors. against the Rivers State APC and Isaac Ogbobula," he alleged.
