An Akure High Court has restrained the Ondo state Speaker, Mr David Oleyeloogun and the House of Assembly from suspending the lawmaker representing Eseodo constituency in the Assembly.












Recalled a lawmaker, Hon Success Torhukerhijo was expelled by the All Progressives Congress (APC) for not signing the impeachment notice against the Deputy Governor; Hon Agboola Ajayi sought the protection of the court from being suspended from his legislative duties.










Also, VOICE AIR MEDIA reported that the Assembly has suspended four lawmakers including the Deputy Speaker; Hon Ogundeji Iroju, the only woman; Favour Tomomowo and the only Zenith Labour Party (ZLP) member in the Assembly, Hon Tomide Akinribido and Wale Williams over their refusal to sign impeachment notice against the Deputy Governor.


Following the suspension of Hon. Akinribido representing Ondo West Constituency under ZLP, a committee was set up to investigate Hon Torhukerhijo over his purported foul language in a media chat and report back to the house so as to carry out their premeditated agenda.


Fearing that he may be suspended like his other pro-Ajayi lawmakers, T
Torhukerhijo sought the protection of the court from being suspended.










An order ex-parte granted by Justice Ademola Bola consequently restrained the Assembly, Speaker, their officers, agents and servants from suspending the lawmaker representing Ese-Odo as a member of the House.


The order was also served with a motion on notice as well as an originating summons.
