The request was contained in a motion on notice brought by his lawyer, Oba Maduabuchi, SAN, dated and filed on June 25.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Okorocha, Senator representing Imo West Senatorial District, in a suit marked FHC/ABJ/CS/558/2020 filed on May 28, 2020, had urged the court to restrain the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and others from probing him.
While the EFCC is the 1st respondent, the 2nd to 48th respondents are the Attorney General (AG) of Imo and members of the seven panels set up to probe previous administrations in the state.
However, only the EFCC was represented in court on Tuesday.
Maduabuchi told the court that the latest application sought a restoration of the status quo despite the white paper issued by the state government panels.
The senior lawyer said despite the service of the motion on the 2nd to 48th defendants, none of them appeared in court.
According to him, one is not surprised about their absence in court because that has been their attitude.
“It is surprising that the attorney general of the state, who was served processes in the suit since last year, has not filed anything,” he said.
Maduabuchi informed that immediately an order of stay of proceedings against the panels was granted by the court, the state government panels quickly accelerated their proceedings and concluded their findings.
“Copies of the white paper issued by the panels were exhibited in the application,” he said.
“For the attorney general and the panels, we can go to hell.
“But I know my lord is not completely powerless,” he said.
Counsel to the EFCC, G.C. Ofulue, did not oppose Maduabuchi’s application.
He also ordered that hearing notices be issued to the 2nd to 48th defendants.
