Court dismisses suspended Ogun LG chairman’s suit to stop probe


Ogun State High Court sitting in Ijebu Ode has dismissed an ex-parte application filed by Wale Adedayo, the suspended Chairman of Ijebu East Local Government asking the court to stop further investigations by councilors of Ijebu East LG probing him on allegations of financial mismanagement.

councillors of the Ijebu East Legislative Council recently suspended Wale Adedayo in continuation of investigations over alleged financial mismanagement and ordered his vice to take over pending the conclusion of the investigation.

On Tuesday in its ruling on the ex-parte motion argued by counsel to the plaintiff, Barrister O.T. Are, standing in for Adeyinka Kotoye SAN, on behalf of Adedayo, the presiding judge, Justice Ayodele Omoniyi, dismissed the application in “its entirety”.

Are had informed the court of the ex-parte motion dated September 6 praying for an interim order restraining the defendants, their agents, and privies from further proceeding on the invitation letter to the claimant that asked him to appear before the Council on the 14th of September or in the alternative to order parties to maintain the status quo.

The court in its ruling noted that the application was not timely since he had received a notice on 31 August of the said resolution but waited till 11 September before filing his application.

The judge said, “delay defeats equity.”
