The injunction was issued by Justice Christine Dabup, after listening to Mr Niri Darong, Counsel to seven “illustrious sons of Berom nation”, who had dragged the state government before him over the creation of two traditional councils out of the Jos Traditional Council.
The creation of the two councils left the Jos Joint Traditional Council with only two local governments – Jos and Barkin-Ladi – instead of the former four.
Irked by that move, the seven petitioners, led by Mr Daniel Choji, “on behalf of themselves and all adult male Berom indigenes of Berom Districts in Jos North, Jos South, Barkin Ladi and Riyom Local Governments, rushed to the court to stop it.
Dabup, in issuing the order, said that it followed an ex-parte motion dated May 22, 2019 and filed the same day by one Da Daniel Chji of Dong, in Kabong, Jos North Local Government, in which he prayed for an interim injunction and mandatory order.
Dabup fixed June 11, 2019 for the hearing on the motion on notice. (NAN)Read more: Daily Trust
