Following the declaration, he was arrested at the South-South zonal secretariat of the party in Port Harcourt.

Justice E. Obile who granted Dagogo bail in fundamental rights action and ex parte application sought by his legal team, also ordered the state Commissioner of Police, Friday Eboka, Deputy Commissioner of Police in charge of the State Criminal and Investigation Department, Deputy Superintendent of Police, the state’s Attorney General, and Chief Magistrate, Amadi Nna, to release Dagogo from police detention and restore his personal liberty.

An interim injunction was ordered by the court restraining the respondents, “especially the police, the commandant of the Government House, DSP Efeturi Irikefe, the fourth respondent, the state Attorney General, and Chief Magistrate A. I. Amadi Nna from further instigating, threatening, harassing and invading the personal liberty of Dagogo.”


The court equally restrained the respondent from further obstructing the PDP governorship aspirant or hindering him, detaining him in custody from additionally attending his screening in party primaries as well as other electoral processes


The lead lawyer, Dr Innocent Ekwe who spoke shortly to PUNCH after the court proceedings, said;


“The police arrived this evening at the federal high court bringing a letter from the office of the DCR to confirm and verify that the order and warrant admitting him to bail is from the court.


“That verification has just been done. Our client is now to be released by the Commissioner of Police.


“I filed the proceedings at the federal high court, an application for his bail which was heard and determined. And the terms of the bail have been fulfilled,” he stated.



Ekwe pointed out that the PDP knows the consequences of not giving Hon. Dagogo who represents Degema-Bonny federal constituency in the House of Representatives an opportunity to be screened as a governorship aspirant in the state.


“And the fact that he was not screened due to the fact that he was abducted from the venue.


“We promptly write to the party informing them of the scenario and asking them to give him another fate for him to be screened.


“And we know the parry will screen him now that he has been given bail because the party knows the consequences of excluding him unlawfully.


“The people who are pursuing prosecution may wish to continue, but we have filed a preliminary objection challenging the information as incompetent and has been politically motivated.
