Court strikes out Ondo Deputy Governor’s suit to stop impeachment

An Ondo State High Court, sitting in Akure, the State capital today struck out a suit instituted by the embattled deputy governor of Ondo State, Lucky Aiyedatiwa challenging his impeachment by the state House of Assembly.

In its ruling delivered by Justice O. Akintan-Osadebay, the court declined jurisdiction to avoid conflicting verdict between Ondo High Court and Abuja Federal High Court.

The judge ruled that it was a gross abuse of court process to engage in “forum shopping, by instituting same case in Akure and Abuja High court.

It will be recalled that Aiyedatiwa had approached the court in a suit delineated AK/348/2023 filed on September 25, 2023, to stop the House of Assembly from impeaching him.
