Governor Sim Fubara filed the application ex parte earlier on Wednesday through his attorney, Damian Okoro (SAN).

Deputy Speaker, Dumle Maol, the Clerk of the House and the Chief Judge of the State, Justice Simeon Chibuzor Amadi were also served the restraining order.

Following a lawsuit filed against the defendants, Presiding Judge Justice Ben Whyte issued an order directing the parties to maintain the status quo while the move on notice was decided. The motion on notice was then postponed until November 14, 2023.
