Justice Sobere Biambo of a Port-Harcourt High Court has ordered the release of the International passport of the major leader of the Rivers State House of Assembly Chidi Lloyd on health grounds.
Justice Latam Nyordee of a Port-Harcourt High Court had seized Chidi Lloyd's nternational Passport after granting him bail last month in the case brought against him by the police over his role in the violence that broke out on the floor of the assembly on the 9th of July.
Justice BIAMBO ordered that Chidi Lloyd's passport should be release to him for six weeks following an application by his lawyer Beluolisa Nwofor.
Nwofor told the Court that Chidi Lloyd needs his International passport to enable him travel abroad to receive better medical treatment following the injuries he sustained from the fracas at the assembly.
Meanwhile, Justice Biambo also ordered Chidi Lloyd to return his International passport to the court on or before the 28th of October 2013.
