As the leadership tussle in the ruling party continues, the Rivers High Court has restrained former Deputy National Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Victor Giadom from parading himself as a member or officer of the party.
Presiding judge, Justice C. Nwogu gave the order in a suit filed by Okechukwu Chidor Ogbonna and Mac-Lords Peterson against APC Rivers chapter; Acting chairman of the chapter Igo Aguma; Victor Giadom and Golden Chioma in Port-Harcourt.
According to The court, having been suspended by the State Executive Committee (SEC) of APC, Giadom should not participate in the activities of the party pending determination of the substantive case.
