129

A Lagos High Court sitting in Igbosere has struck out contempt proceedings against the State governor, Akinwunmi Ambode.

Otodo gbame community had dragged the governor to the court following his plan to demolish the area.

Justice S. A. Onigbangbo, while striking out the suit, stated that, “the court lacks the jurisdiction to charge the governor of the state because of the immunity he enjoys.”

The ruling means the community would be forcefully evicted from the area for the government to accomplish its aims.

Meanwhile in a telephone interview with Rainbow fm news, the Coordinator of justice on development for initiative, Megan Chapman, reacts to the judgment.
