The date was Saturday, June 23, 2018. The venue was the iconic Eagles square, Abuja. The time was about 3.30 pm. The event was the National Convention of the All Progressive Congress. Attendance saw the arena filled to the brim with men and women from all walks of (Nigeria) life. The world press, the Nigeria press, movers and shakers of the Nigerian nation were there. The President, Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces if the Federal Republic of Nigeria was mid way into his key note address.

The Imo APC delegates like all other states delegates were also there – seated right next to the President podium.
In the full glare of the world, of national and international Television network and in the manner of the Nazi Gestapo, Imo Governor, Rochas Okorocha, accompanied with over 150 stern looking, egbesu-like men crashed into the arena from unauthorized gate and attacked the Imo delegates to the consternation and bewilderment of all. The gangsterism and brigandage enveloped the arena and persisted through the voting leading to the destruction of ballot boxes of six states.
Consequently, with so much billions of Imo State money sunk, Okorocha's Emma Ibediro was declared elected as APC National Organizing Secretary while Distinguished Senator Osita Izunaso was purported to have lost. It was a pyrrhic victory which saw the gang return to Owerri in chartered jets where after they painted the whole of the desecrated Government House red with ill-gotten champagne.
The Stakeholders Forum and the Coalition charged Imolites and Nigerians to be calm because as long as Jehovah lives Light will always prevail over darkness. Okorocha's desperation to impose his son-in-law on Imolites will eventually amount to effort in futility.
We pledged and still pledge that we will prosecute all matters in court even up to the Supreme Court if only to prove that impunity has no fertile place in Igbo land. In the following words, a Federal High Court presided over by Justice N.O. Dimgba by its ruling on Monday, September 24, 2018 sends a strong message to Rochas Okorocha that the end of impunity is nigh! Happy reading…
“… the purported return and declaration of Emmanuel Ibediro as the winner of the election into the All Progressive Congress office of the National Organizing Secretary which election took place at the APC National Convention held at Eagles Square, Three Arms Zone, Abuja on the 23rd and 24th of June, 2018 under the supervision of INEC is illegal, null and void and of no effect whatsoever'';
Therefore, I hereby make “AN ORDER directing the INEC NOT TO ACCORD AND/OR STOP further according recognition to or in any way treating Emmanuel Ibediro as the National Organizing Secretary of the APC  “AN ORDER compelling the INEC to ensure that APC complies with its constitution and Guidelines in electing its officials”. “AN ORDER compelling the APC to stop further parading or holding out Emmanuel Ibediro as its National Organizing Secretary” “AN ORDER of perpetual injunction restraining Emmanuel Ibediro from parading or holding out himself as the APC's National Organizing Secretary”
“AN ORDER compelling INEC and APC to ensure that the election into the office of the APC's National Organizing Secretary is concluded or conducted afresh within 30 days from the date of judgment in this suit” “AN ORDER directing the APC to conclude the election into the office of APC's National Organizing Secretary or organize a fresh election under the supervision of the INEC where all the duly accredited delegates of the party from the 36 states of the Federation will be allowed to cast their votes voluntarily and without let or hindrance”
