Umeh told the court that since a notice of appeal has been entered, “the appellate court is seised of the matter.

Meanwhile, based on the information from Umeh and having tendered the certify true copy of records from the Bar showing that an appeal has been properly entered at the Court of Appeal, Justice Ekwo struck out the application seeking the stay of execution of the judgement which had sacked Governor Umahi and his deputy, from office.
