The Federal High Court in Abuja has stopped the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, from ending voter registration on June 30, 2022.

The Presiding Judge, Mobolaji Olajuwon granted an order of interim injunction following the hearing of an argument by Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project, SERAP.

Justice Olajuwon adjourned to June 29, 2022, for the hearing of the Motion on Notice for interlocutory injunction.

SERAP and 185 concerned Nigerians filed the lawsuit against INEC, asking the court to declare unconstitutional and incompatible the failure of the Electoral Body to extend the deadline for voter registration.
