The embattled member of the House of Representatives, Farah Dagogo, has dragged the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to court, following his exclusion from the list of governorship aspirants in Rivers State.

The lawmaker and governorship aspirant, who is being detained at the Port Harcourt Correctional Centre, is standing trial for conspiracy to felony and cultism at the Federal High Court, Port Harcourt.

Dagogo, in a motion on notice, filed at the Federal High Court, Abuja, is seeking an order of interlocutory injunction restraining PDP from using any list of aspirants without his name to conduct the May 26 primary election pending the hearing and determination of the substantive suit.

He is also seeking an order restraining INEC from accepting any candidate, who might emerge from the primary election conducted without his participation.

It was gathered that six lawyers, B.A. Adegbie, M. Dayi, A.M. Idoghor, H. Amrurhobo, Dickson Sofiyegha and Erica Akpofure, filed the action on behalf of Dagogo.

Details shortly…..
