ICYMI: ‘Behave And Be Calm’, Court Warns Parties In Adeleke Eligibility Case


Justice Maurine Onyetenu of a Federal High Court in Osogbo, on Tuesday, warned all parties in a suit on the eligibility of Senator Ademola Adeleke in the September 22 gubernatorial election to “behave and be calm”.


Onyetenu, gave the warning after Mr  Femi Ayadokun, counsel to Mr Akin Ogunbiyi,  informed the court that the second plaintiff, Mr Thomas Ojetade, was abducted and made to sign some documents on November 17, which had to do with the withdrawal of the suit before the court, against his wish.

The trial judge warned, “the court will not tolerate any threat, intimidation and harassment of the parties to the suit.

The judge then adjourned the case until January 23, for hearing.

NAN reports that Mr Awosiyan Olalekan, Ojetade and Mr  Awodire Sina filed a suit in the court, seeking Adeleke’s disqualification from the September 22 governorship election for allegedly submitting fake certificates to get the Peoples Democratic Party ticket and participate in the governorship poll.

Olalekan, Sina and Thomas, in an originating summon dated October 30 through their counsel, Gboyega Oyewole, SAN, argued that the participation of Adeleke and his return as the winner of the governorship primary conducted by the PDP on the July 21 for the purpose of him being the candidate of the party and his subsequent participation in the governorship election of the September 22  as the party’s candidate, was null and void ..

Adeleke’s Counsel, Mr Nathaniel Oke (SAN) had questioned the rationale behind the suit, filed a preliminary objection and counter affidavit against the originating summons.
