The development comes one day after a Federal High Court sitting in Owerri, the state capital issued an interim injunction restraining the APC and INEC from substituting or publishing any names other than those of winners of the October 6 primaries.

Twenty APC members who were declared winners of the primaries held at all levels had approached the court to seek the ex parte order.

They accused the National Working Committee of the party of planning to substitute their names with other names of aspirants who lost in the primaries.
