Judiciary vs Executive: Kogi High Court adjourns sine die, reserves ruling

By Ibrahim Oyewale, From Lokoja

Kogi High Court sitting in Koton-Karfe has adjourned sine die in a suit instituted by the state Judiciary against the executive over alleged attempts to illegally remove the state Chief Judge, Justice Nasir Ajanah.

This follows unexpected withdrawal of security personnel from the court premises few minutes to the delivery of its ruling on Friday.

The court has also reserved ruling on the motion seeking nullification of the April 2, resolution of the state House of Assembly recommending removal of the Chief Judge.

Justice Alaba Omolaye-Ajileye, the presiding High Court judge in the suit disclosed this in Koton-Karfe after botched sitting in the SUIT NO. HC/KK/11CV/2018 brought against the state executive by the Chief Judge and Chief Registrar, Alhaji Yahaya Adamu.

The court resumed sitting on Friday with lead counsels to the parties in the suit adopting their written addresses on the Motion NO. HC/KK02M/201.

The claimants/ applicants in the motion had contended that the House of Assembly defied the pendency of Suit and the interim injunctive orders of the court, to have sat and issued a resolution in respect of the matter.

They prayed for an order of the court nullifying and setting aside the resolution purportedly passed by the House at its plenary sitting of 2nd April, 2019 in defiance of the pendency of the suit.

The action of the legislative arm, according to the motion, also defied the interim injunctive orders of court by acting upon a report submitted to it by its Public Accounts Committee.
