Amebo news reports that the royal families in a press statement recalled that the court in the ruling in suit number Ab/ 253/2019 between Prince Adesola Asade and 2 others vs. Governor of Ogun State and others on March 3, 2022 set aside the approval and appointment of Yisa Olaniyan as the Onipokia of Ipokia.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The families added that Justice Ogunfowora had set aside the approval and appointment of Yisa Olaniyan as the Onipokia of Ipokia pending the hearing and determination of the motion of notice for injunction earlier filed by Asade/Adekanbi royal Family on behalf of Iwaye Adodo Rulling House, Ipokia.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Amebo news further reports that the families, however, expressed shock that despite the above order Olaniyan has continued unabated to parade himself as the Onipokia of Ipokia and gallivanting all over the place to illegally carry out the functions and duties as Onipokia of Ipokia.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

‘It is pertinent to state unequivocally here that in his ruling on the subject matter at the State High Court, sitting in Abeokuta, on 3rd March, 2022, his Lordship, Honourable Justice Ogunfowora had set aside the approval and appointment of Yisa Olaniyan as the Onipokia of Ipokia pending the hearing and determination of the motion of notice for injuction earlier filed by Asade/Adekanbi royal family on behalf of Iwaye Adodo ruling house Ipokia’

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

‘Despite the above order Yisa Olaniyan has continued unabated to parade himself as the Onipokia of Ipokia and gallivanting all over the place to illegally carry out the functions and duties as Onipokia of Ipokia’, the families noted.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The families pointed out that in its ruling, the judge specifically stated at page 6 ,that he must state with all sense of responsibility that a government that requests, nay, demands obedience and respect of its citizenry to eschew self-help must not itself disrespect the court and its processes, particularly when it is aware that a matter is in court

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Amebo news online also reports that the Iwaye Dodo ruling house stated in the statement that the court posited that the defendants have no right to take matters into their hands once the court was seized of it, in the final analysis and in view of the above.

‘However, despite the above order of the court, Yisa Olusola Olaniyan has continued to recklessly, lawlessly and most irresponsibly carry-out the functions and duties as Onipokia of Ipokia in flagrant disobedience of the valid and subsisting order of the High court of Ogun State’, the families noted.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

‘On April 11, 2022 the Asade/Adekanbi who are the Claimants in the suit on behalf of the entire Asade, Adekanbi, Oteni and Okeleye families of Iwaye Adodo Ruling house in Ipokia further approached the High Court by filing the necessary/appropriate processes for committal proceedings against the Yisa Olusola Olaniyan and other traditional ruler(s), official(s), person(s) or group(s) for aiding and/or condoning reckless and lawless disobedience of Court Order. The committal processes still in court’, the families wrote.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

‘Since March 3, 2022 Yisa Olusola Olaniyan has continued to illegally perform official functions as Onipokia of Ipokia at several occasions and proves and evidences has been filled before the court. It’s on record that Yisa Olusola has installed over Fifteen (15) head of villages (Baales) in the last two (2,) years of the ruling against the order of the court of competent jurisdiction.

‘This action of Yisa Olaniyan is contemptuous, abuse of court order and an affront to constituted authority (Court) and total disrespect to Hon Justice Ogunfowora ruling of the court of competent jurisdiction’.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

‘We wish to warn (with courteous regards) Yewa Land Traditional Count, Chiefs including persons, groups, bodies or associations that it is contemptuous, and a criminal offence to accord respect to, or recognize or address Yisa Olusola Olaniyan as Onipokia of Ipokia, or address him as such in any way or manner either directly or by implications. We are law abiding and we believe in the rule of law.

He also explained that emergency responders are currently at the scene conducting search and rescue operations.

 

CDHR, however, blamed the unfortunate incident on the negligence by the state government, and the school management for brutally violating the right to lives of the dead students, the educational progress of the injured and putting the remaining students under perpetual fear that their lives might not be safe under the supervision of the state agencies and officials.

The government should put necessary measures in place to checkmate future occurrences and build confidence among the residents and students inhabiting similar structures.

Lagos Lawmakers Invite Attorney-General Over Supreme Court Judgement On LGs

 

commend Police for successful operation against kidnappers

– applaud First Lady Remi Tinubu for encouraging gardens

 

 

The Lagos State House of Assembly has invited the Attorney-General of the State, Mr. Lawal Pedro, to appear before it to explain the Supreme Court judgement on local governments in the country.

 

Lagos Lawmakers Invite Attorney-General Over Supreme Court Judgement On LGs

The lawmakers said there was a need for better understanding of the decision of the apex court in relation to some provisions in the Constitution of the country.

A seven-man panel of the Supreme Court had declared on Thursday that the 774 local government councils in the country should receive their funds directly from the Federal Government as well as manage such funds themselves being a tier of government.

The court further declared that allocations to local government councils run by caretaker committees were illegal.

Ruling after a voice vote by lawmakers at plenary on Thursday, the Speaker of the Assembly, Rt. Hon. Mudashiru Obasa, ruled: “There is a need for us to seek clarification and understanding of this judgement. It will be good to invite the Attorney-General to brief us and give his understanding so that we do not run foul of the judgement.”

Meanwhile, the Lagos State House of Assembly has resolved to write a letter of commendation to the Inspector-General of Police, Kayode Egbetokun, over the successful operation by men of the force that led to the elimination of nine kidnappers in the state recently.

A letter of commendation is also to be sent to the Commissioner of Police in Lagos State, Adegoke Mustapha Fayoade, for the efforts of the policemen which led to the fruitful operation.

Speaker Mudashiru Obasa, who presided over the plenary, said the police and men of the force who took part in the operation needed to be commended.

Dr. Obasa agreed with members of the House that letters be sent to Egbetokun and Fayoade further charging them not to relent in keeping the State safe for residents.

He stressed the need for stakeholders to fast-track considerations for the creation of state police to support the federal police system.

The Majority Leader of the House, Hon. Noheem Adams, had earlier recalled how the police launched the operation against some kidnappers in the Ladipo area of the state and eliminated nine of them.

According to him, there has been calm in the area since the operation was carried out.

Noheem added that the Ikorodu area of the state which hitherto had issues of kidnapping now enjoys relative peace.

In another development, the House of Assembly has applauded the First Lady of Nigeria, Senator Oluremi Tinubu, for seeking to encourage subsistence agriculture.

The Speaker said it was a beautiful idea to encourage Nigerians to have gardens in their houses arguing that this would help to create food sufficiency.

He recalled that schools had farms in the past adding that current situations call for a return to that period.
