Adams Oshiomhole has headed to the court of Appeal over an Abuja high court judgement that suspended him as national chairman of the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC).
The high court had ruled that the party err in keeping him as national chairman after he was suspended by his state, Edo, chapter of the APC.
The police had earlier taken over the national secretariat of the party following the court ruling.
But the former labour leader has now proceeded to the court of appeal to also seek a stay of execution of the judgement.
Among those he joined as defendants are Mohammed Adamu, inspector-general of police, as well as the Department of State Services (DSS).
