Court Reinstates 4 Suspended Ondo Lawmakers, Asks Assembly To Pay Each Of Them N5m
The lawmakers were suspended on July 8, 2020 from the Assembly led by Mr Bamidele Oleyelogun for alleged gross-misconduct and unruly behaviour.
Those earlier suspended include the Deputy Speaker, Ogundeji Iroju (Odigbo Constituency); Wale Williams (Ondo Constituency I); Tomide Akinribido (Ondo Constituency II); Favour Tomomowo (Ilaje Constituency II).
The lawmakers are all loyalists of the deputy governor, Mr Agboola Ajayi, and ensured that he was not illegally impeached by the Assembly.
In his judgment to the suit challenging the suspension of the lawmakers, Justice Ademola Bola described the suspension as illegal, null and void, noting that the Assembly had no power to suspend any member.
Justice Bola also ordered that a sum of N5m be paid to each of the lawmakers as damages.
KanyiDaily had also reported how a member of the Benue State House of Assembly, Hon. Jonathan Agbidye, was sent to prison for alleged kidnapping, armed robbery and criminal conspiracy.
