The peace deal between the waring factions of the Peoples' Democratic Party seems to have broken down less than five days after it was signed.
This follows a warning by the National Chairman of the party, Ali Modu Sheriff against reference to the Ahmed Makarfi-led National Caretaker Committee, as a faction of the party.
In a statement by his deputy, Cairo Ojougboh, Mr Sheriff said by the pronouncement of the Court of Appeal in Port-Harcourt, such a group is not supposed to be in existence.
Cautioning media houses to take note and not to refer to the group as faction, he said an appeal is not a stay of execution, insisting that the group is illegal.
He warned Makarfi and his group to stop interfering in the affairs of the party.
