The group insisted that it would not fold its arms and allow some elements

would not keep quiet in the face of continuing poking fingers into the eyes

to be scuttled by some elements because of selfish interest.

Supporting its argument with the position of the erudite jurist,Justice
Kayode Eso,JSC ( as he then was) that ” Court order are meant to be obeyed
by the parties- the plaintiff, the defendant, the Prosecutor and the
accused.A party who fails or refuses to Obey the Court orders does not only
shows disregard to the Constitution, the Laws of the land and justice.Be an
individual or Corporate organization, disobedience of Court orders is
inimical to the well established tenets of democracy, because by the
conduct , not only the rule of law is brutalized but the administration of
justice in the society.Above all,it is a most uncivilized conduct”.

It would be recalled that the Supreme Court of Nigeria had made a final
decision on the Ora-Igbomina Obaship tussle in a Supreme Court suit Number.
256/1989 on September 1st,1995, where it declared that “Akesin Ora?” was
not an Oba, not to talk wearing beaded Crown but one of the Chiefs of
Asaoni of Ora-Igbomina kingdom and also awarded N1,000 against the
acclaimed “Akesin Ora”.
