Nine lawyers and one other plaintiff have asked the Federal High Court Lagos to stop the Labour Party (LP), its candidates, and supporters from conducting a rally tagged #Obidatti23 Forward Ever Rally” on October 1 or any other date, in Lagos State.

They specifically asked the court to restrain the LP, its presidential candidate Peter Obi, his vice; Yusuf Datti Baba-Ahmed, one Julius Abure, and their loyalists from holding the rally, until the hearing and determination of their motion-on-notice of September 12.

In an ex parte motion filed before Justice Daniel Osiagor through their counsel senior advocate of Nigeria, Dada Awosika and others, the plaintiffs argued that a repeat or celebration of the “infamous” #EndSARS protest of 2020 under the political guise of “#Obidatti23 Forward Ever Rally will cause a breakdown of peace and will result in a post-traumatic stress disorder for them and the public.

Justice Osiagor directed the plaintiffs to put all the defendants on notice, before adjourning the hearing of the substantive motion till September 23.
