Less than 24 hours to the scheduled All Progressives Congress (APC) state congress in Imo, a Federal High Court in Owerri has issued a court injunction stopping anyone from participating in the state congress.

The court injunction signed by Justice Lewis Allagoa says all members of the party in Imo State including the state chairman, Hilary Eke, should restrain from organising any congress in the state pending the hearing and determination of the motion on notice for an interlocutory injunction.

The court order was served to the APC on Friday night.

The APC faction led by the Imo state Governor Rochas Okorocha has approached the court seeking interim court injunction to stop the state congress earlier scheduled for tomorrow until issues surrounding the ward and LG congress are resolved.

However, the Other APC faction under the umbrella of Imo APC coalition group says Okorocha faction is acting on its own as no court has served them any notice of any injunction stopping the Congress insisting that the Congress will still go on as scheduled by the National working committee of the party.
