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 and resolving R.A. Lawal-Rabana (SAN), Abeni Mohammed (SAN), A.M.Aliyu (SAN), Tawo E. Tawo (SAN) and and three others represented the claimants/applicants.

Sale Sule, leading another, Yusuf Goodluck for the defendants/respondents said he had filed a counter eight-paragraph affidavit, adding that they relied on the averments. Justice Omolaye-Ajileye, after adoption of the addresses by the counsels went on a two-hour stand down to deliver his ruling on the motion. Minutes into the two-hour stand down, the judge called counsels to the parties into his chambers, to intimate them on the security situation, as a result of sudden withdrawal of police personnel from the court. He said that the security situation with the sudden withdrawal of police officers and men from the court, and the intelligence reports reaching him, it was not safe for the court to resume sitting. He therefore adjourned the case sine die but however, told the counsels that they would be notified once the court fixed a date for ruling on the motion.]]>
