Embattled outgoing governor of Imo State Rochas Okorocha made a hurried entry into the Abuja division of the Federal High Court on Tuesday in pursuit of his Certificate of Return as senator-elect for Imo West senatorial district.

Reports say the governor, accompanied by some of his aides and lawyers drove into the court premises in a convoy at about 4pm on Tuesday and walked straight into some offices of the court.

However, Okorocha emerged from the court premises about 30 minutes later, but refused to speak with journalists who waited for him outside the court premises for possible comments.

Okorocha in a suit marked FHC/ABJ/CS/296/2019, filed by his counsel, Kehinde Ogunwumiju (SAN) is seeking a court order compelling the INEC to issue him a certificate of return as the validly-elected senator for Imo West senatorial district.

However, hearing in the suit has suffered several set backs following some legal hurdles introduced by some interested parties to the suit and the set backs reached a climax when Justice Taiwo. O. Taiwo, who was assigned to adjudicate on the case withdrew from the matter over allegations of bias made against him by candidates of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).

The case has been assigned to another Judge of the court, Justice Okon Abang, who has already adjourned it to May 8, 2019, at the instance of the plaintiff.
