Justice Mohammed also granted leave to the applicant to apply for judicial review for an Order of Mandamus compelling the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offenses Commission, ICPC, sued as the 9th defendant in the suit to investigate the Minister of Niger Delta, Godswill Akpabio and the five members of the Board over allegations of N3 billion contract fraud.

The court also granted leave to the applicant to apply for judicial review of the power of the President or the Minister of the Niger Delta to appoint Pondei, Ojougboh and others in an interim capacity as members of the NDDC Board.

By the order of the court, members of the NDDC Board are restrained from performing the functions of the Board pending the hearing and determination of the Motion on Notice which is fixed for December 8, 2020.
