The Oyo State high court presided over by Justice Oladiran Akintola has restrained the house of assembly from removing Raufu Olaniyan as deputy governor of the state.
According to the Court, the status-quo must be maintained pending the hearing of the application for interlocutory injunctions before it.
Until the court decides, the assembly is to stop any removal process they may want to initiate.
OYOINSIGHT.COM learnt that the assembly is billed to read Olaniyan’s reply to their allegation this morning.
This was just as the court adjourned the matter to Tuesday, July 5 2022 for continuation of hearing.
The adjournment, OYOINSIGHT.COM understands, was to allow the assembly files its reply to that of Olaniyan.
Director of legal services, Olabanji represented the assembly, while Chief Afolabi Fashanu, SAN, led Olaniyan’s legal team.
