share on:

An Enugu State High Court presided over by Justice C.I Nwobodo has declared as illegal and unconstitutional the premature removal from office, the former Chairman of the Enugu State Universal Basic Education Board, ENSUBEB, Mrs. Ethel Nebo-Ezeabasili in 2012.

In a ruling that lasted several hours, the Court also awarded  N10 million damages and a N100,000 cost against the Governor Sullivan Chime led Government for illegal and unconstitutional actions against Mrs. Nebo-Ezeabasilli.

Mrs. Nebo-Ezeabasili had approached the State High Court in Enugu to declare her removal from office as illegal and unconstitutional and to award her damages over a trumped up allegation that she embezzled over N245 mllion Naira belonging to the Enugu State Government.

Meanwhile, Mrs. Ethel Nebo-Ezeabasili who had fled the State over alleged attempts on her life could not be reached to react to the judgment.
