Court restrains INEC from engaging MC Oluomo-led Lagos parks committee for 2023 elections

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has been restrained from engaging Musiliu Akinsanya aka MC Oluomo-led Lagos State Parks Management Committee or any of its commercial bus drivers from distributing 2023 election materials and personnel in Lagos State.

The Federal High Court sitting in Lagos gave the interim injunction on Monday.

The court granted the order of interlocutory injunction filed by the Labour Party (LP) and  five others.

The order stands pending the hearing and determination of the substantive suit.

The court ruled that the order restrains the INEC (defendant/respondent) “whether by itself or by its officers, affiliates, servants, privies or agents or any person acting or purporting to act for and on its behalf howsoever from taking any steps or further steps whatsoever in furtherance of the engagement or appointment or consummating the appointment” of the  Akinsanya-led Lagos State Parks Management Committee.
