The interim order was granted by the Justice I.E. Ekwo of the Federal High Court, Abuja in suit number FHC/ABJ/CS/626/2023 – Juliet Gbaka & 2 others v. Seplat Energy Plc & 13 others, and served on the Company on 12 May 2023. The Court subsequently adjourned pending applications to 30 May 2023 for hearing.
