The #ObiDatti23 Forward Ever Rally scheduled for October 1, 2022, suffered a backlash on Wednesday as a Federal High Court sitting in Lagos ordered the Labour Party and its supporters not to converge at the Lekki Toll-Gate.
The ruling says supporters of the Labour Party can pass through the Toll Gate for its rally but must not converge on the facility.
The Inspector General of Police, Usman Baba and Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Abiodun Alabi were directed by the presiding Judge, Justice Daniel Osiagor, to ensure compliance with the order.
The order of Justice Osiagor was made on Wednesday while ruling on a Motion for Injunction brought by 10 plaintiffs, including nine lawyers, who are asking the court to, among others, restrain the LP, its presidential candidate, Peter Obi, his running mate, Yusuf Baba-Ahmed, one Julius Abure and their loyalists from holding the rally.
