Court restrains Oyo, Ajimobi from visiting disputed land Seyi Makinde and Abiola Ajimobi 300x208

 

A high court sitting in Ibadan , the Oyo State capital, on Monday , restrained former governor Abiola Ajimobi and the state government from visiting a landed property in contention between the two parties.
The said land , being revoked by the state government , belongs to the former governor .
The presiding judge and Chief Judge of Oyo State , Justice Munta Abimbola , gave the order following the inability of the court to hear a motion on notice for interlocutory injunction filed by Kazeem Gbadamosi , counsel for Ajimobi.
This was due to the failure of counsel for the state government , Mr Nathaniel Oke , to respond promptly to the motion .
At the resumed hearing of the matter on Monday , the state government ’s counsel , asked for an extension of time to respond to the application filed by the former governor .
Whereas Gbadamosi raised no objection to the motion , he asked the court to order that status quo be maintained on the land .
In his ruling on the matter, the judge ordered the counsel to advise their clients not go to or take any action on the said land pending the determination of the motion.
The court ordered counsel for the state government to file the defence within 10 days and that the petitioner must respond within seven days of being served .
He adjourned the matter till March 30 within which the parties are expected to file necessary papers in court.

COVID-19 Lockdown: Police inspector kills fuel attendant. Nigeria police afp1 1024x576

An inspector of police identified as Stanley Azu serving under Azumini Police Division in Ukwa East LGA of Abia State has reportedly killed a petrol station staff in Obingwa LGA.

The incident happened along popular New Umuahia road.

Inspector Stanley was said to have tried stopping a vehicle that violated the lockdown order but the driver defied the instruction.

Sources in the area said that the police inspector chased the driver and reportedly fired at him.

The bullet strayed and hit Chibuisi, who was in his business centre.

Chibuisi was said to have been pronounced dead at Abia State Teaching Hospital where he was rushed to for urgent medical attention.

Chibuisi until his death was a staff of Greenmac Energy Ltd, a Petroleum Station Company owned by his in-law.

Abia Police Commissioner, Ene Okon, confirmed the arrest of the officer and said that the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID) has taken over the matter.

Okon said that the police as an institution does not take such action of the inspector lightly.

“That police inspector was arrested immediately and detained.

“As I’m talking to you, SCID has taken over the matter and are investigating the police inspector for murder.

“We have our rules of engagement, we have our standard of operation and procedure and we have our own Force Order 237 as reviewed.

“That order has to do with when a police officer has to use his firearm and it’ll be justified,” Okon said.
