Ekiti: Court Refuses To Stop Fayose’s Impeachment

share on:

The Federal High Court in Abuja, has refused to halt the ongoing impeachment case levelled against Ekiti State Governor Ayodele Fayose and his deputy, Kolapo Olusola, by 19 All Progressives Congress members of the state House of Assembly.

It was learnt that Fayose and Olusola, in the ex parte application, asked for an interim order stopping the impeachment notice served on them and the moves to remove them from office.

But they met a brick wall as the judge, Justice Ahmed Mohammed, turned down their request and granted only the prayers contained in their ex parte application relating to the service of the court processes on the defendants.

Rather than granting the prayers for interim injunction, Justice Mohammed ordered the defendants in the suit, including the Speaker of the House, Adewale Omirin, and the Chief Judge of the state, Justice Ayodeji Daramola, to appear in his court on April 16.
