By originating summons, the appellant sought an order declaring the ban of a public meeting at Onitsha as unconstitutional and illegal; and restraining the respondents from interfering with the appellant’s right to hold the ceremonies.

The trial court dismissed the application since the matter could not be summarily settled on a mere motion as presented by the originating summons. The appellant appealed the decision to the Supreme Court.
