Charles Oputa, popularly known as Charly Boy, on Wednesday, led a protest in Owerri, Imo State capital.
His group, Imo Concerned Citizens Forum said the Supreme Court had made a mistake by sacking Emeka Ihedioha and replacing him with Hope Uzodinma in a famous January 14 judgement.
The group demanded a restoration of Ihedioha’s mandate.
Speaking in Igbo, English and Pidgin English, the son of Justice Chukwudife Oputa who once headed the Supreme Court, said his father told him to fight injustice as the Supreme Court can make mistakes.
He said, “Na we be government. Those in government houses are not the government but because the way we dey behave, we have made ourselves servants while those in government houses who are now supposed to be our servants are now the government but our mumu don do.
“What we are here to say is very simple. We have come to ask the Supreme Court to reverse its judgment and return justice to Imo State. What was done a few weeks ago by the Supreme Court was a miscarriage of justice.
“As a little boy, a ten-year-old boy, my father told me to fight injustice anywhere. Whether in the South, North, East or West injustice is not good. My father, who was once in charge of the Supreme Court once said that the Supreme Court can make mistakes. We admit that the Supreme Court has made a mistake. They should correct themselves. “
