A faction of Imo state chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, led by Daniel Nwafor, says it has commenced contempt proceedings against the National Chairman of APC, Adams Oshiomhole. Nwafor who made this known to newsmen on Wednesday at the party’s secretariat, Owerri, explained that Oshiomhole had disregarded valid court judgment which affirmed him (Nwafor) the authentic chairman of APC, in the state.

He also disclosed that the chapter’s Caretaker Committee Chairman, Marcellinus Nlemigbo, alongside the committee set up by Oshiomhole, have been suspended forthwith.

“We have a court order which has asked both parties to be in court on 24 of January. The order is in different badges. The order is to come and convince the court why they have to continue to disregard valid court judgment.

“I want to tell you that we have a court judgment which has affirmed that we are the authentic executive members of Imo APC. At the federal court, we will understand why Mr. Marcelenius Nlemigbo and his cohorts will continue to parade themselves as executive having been suspended from the party. We have also commenced contempt proceedings against Adams Oshiomole, why he decided to disregard the valid judgement of an FCT, high court, we have nothing than to resort for help from the court.

“We have commenced contempt proceedings against Adams Oshiomole and hopefully and in the next days we will make it public. In all this, we call on President Muhammad Buhari, to checkmate Oshiomole because we have always sounded it clear that Oshiomole’s activities are aimed at bringing defeat to APC, in Imo state and the Southeast zone.”
