Part of the order of interim injunction also said: “Interim injunction restraining the 1st Defendant from appointing or turbanning the 2nd Defendant or anybody whosoever as a parallel or new Ndadzoko of Tsaragi pending the hearing and determination of the motion or notice.

“Interim injunction to restrain the 2nd defendant from parading himself as head of the Ndadzoko family pending the hearing and determination of the motion on notice.

The counsel to the claimant, I.B. Ayegbami, moved the motion ex-parte, while the court, having considered the application, went ahead to grant it.

Justice Yusuf later adjourned the case to December 12, 2023, for a hearing of the motion on notice already filed.
