Samuel Ortom, governor of Benue, has secured a court order barring the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) from expelling him.
A.I. Itoyonyiman, judge of a Benue state high court, gave the order on Thursday following a suit marked MHC/46/2023, brought before the court on Wednesday.
The PDP and Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) are listed as first and second defendants, respectively.
In its ruling, the court issued an interim order of injunction restraining the PDP from “expelling, suspending or levying any other punishment” on Ortom “pending the determination of the motion on notice for interlocutory injunction”.
