Granting the order of interim injunction stopping Secondus was the Rivers State High Courr, Port Harcourt.

The order was made following a suit filed against Secondus and the PDP by some members of the party identified as Ibeawuchi Ernest Alex, Dennis Nna Amadi, Emmanuel Stephen and Umezirike Onucha.

The court also barred Secondus from calling for any Ward, Local Government or State Congress or setting up committees for such congresses or participating in any activity of the PDP whatsoever while on suspension as a member of PDP.

The court ordered that Secondus would remain suspended pending the hearing and determination of the motion on notice.
