Court vacates order restraining Ayangburen’s Coronation

The Court upon listening to the unanimous application of all the Counsel to the effect that the matter be further adjourned until a date after vacation to ensure all pending applications is argued together, was of the view that the earlier adjourned date of October 6 2015 be vacated accordingly. The counsel for the claimant also prayed the court for an extension of the interim order of injunction earlier granted until after the hearing and determination of the motion on notice for interlocutory injunction. Having listened to all counsels, the Judge, Hon. Justice Olabisi Ogungbesan in her ruling refused to grant an extension to an earlier order dated August 14, 2015 in which she granted an interim injunction. She said the order of interim injunction was for a period of seven (7) days by effluxion of time automatically lapses on Friday 21st August, 2015 following upon which the said order of injunction will thereby stand vacated accordingly. It is on record that Hon. Justice Ogungbesan had earlier found merit in the ex-parte application of one Odupitan Eniola seeking an order of interim injunction restraining the Lagos State Government or its agents from performing the coronation ceremony on Saturday, August 15. In a motion on notice, the Lagos State Government, had sought to quash the earlier order of interim injunction made by the court, halting the coronation ceremony, be set aside for an order dismissing the suit to be made on grounds of constituting an abuse of the court process.]]>
