Appeal Court sitting in Port Harcourt has reserved judgment on a day to be communicated to parties on five appeals brought by the All Progressives Congress in Rivers State against five sets of respondents in different suits.

The Appeals reserved for judgment includes appeal by the APC against Emma Deeyah, and four others, the one against Bariaye Normagin and five others, and another on APC against Sunday Hokkins and four others, APC against Nna Okpara-Egburuka and Gilbert Kilsi as well as APC and Victor Giadom appeal against Chiduo Ogbonna, Igo Aguma and two others.


The three man appeal panel led by Justice H.S Tzammani reserved the judgment after parties adopted their written address and brief of argument on preliminary objection and substantive matters.


Our correspondent Uchendu Ejiowhor reports that on the appeal by APC against Nna Okpara-Egburuka and Gilbert Kilsi, the court could not grant stay of execution of order by the lower court as sought by APC following a motion brought by counsel to the respondents challenging the jurisdiction of the court to hear the suit.


The three man panel said they will rule on the issue of stay of execution alongside the other matter on the date to be communicated to the parties.
