The Federal High Court has granted an order directing the maintenance of the status quo ante bellum on the 19th day of July 2021.
The order was served on the Chief Judge of Zamfara State, Zamfara State House of Assembly and Governor of Zamfara State.
Despite the foregoing state of affairs, the speaker of the Zamfara State House of Assembly and the House of Assembly have now embarked on steps and actions to overreach the pending suit, disobey the court order and render the effect of the suit nugatory.
