No Supreme Court Order For Stay Of Execution On Appeal Court Verdict Against Agbaso - APGA Legal Adviser


The State Legal Adviser to the All Progressives Grand Alliance – APGA, Mr. Sly Ezeokenwa, says there is no Supreme Court order directing “a stay of execution” on the August sixteenth Appeal Court Verdict which affirmed Chief Victor Oye as the authentic National Chairman of APGA.

Speaking in Awka, Mr. Ezeokenwa dismissed the rumour making rounds that Chief Martin Agbaso and his group had obtained Supreme Court order for a stay of execution of the Court of Appeal judgment.

He explained that the Supreme Court is on recess and would be resuming for a new legal year about middle of September, adding that there was no vacation panel constituted by the Supreme Court, stressing that the court needed to sit to issue such an order.

Mr. Ezeokenwa noted that there should also be a motion for appeal at the Supreme Court, pointing out that a motion for appeal does not translate into stay of execution, noting that it was a mere wishful thinking for anybody to conceive of such a situation.

In his reaction, Dr. Onyechi Ikpeazu-SAN, who is one of the leading counsel on the matter, said there was no way the Supreme Court could grant such a motion without putting the opposing party on notice.

It will be recalled that the Appeal Court sitting in Enugu last week resolved all issues in the substantive suit in favour of Chief Oye.
