An Ondo State High Court has ordered that the Ondo State House of Assembly and its Speaker; Hon Bamidele Oleyeloogun restrain from suspending the lawmaker representing Eseodo constituency in the Assembly, Hon Success Torhukerhijo.

The state assembly had cited misconduct as its reason for suspending Hon Torhukerhijo but he said he was victimised for not signing the impeachment notice against the Deputy Governor; Hon Agboola Ajayi.

In an order ex-parte granted by Justice Ademola Bola, the Assembly, Speaker, their officers, agents and servants were restrained from suspending the lawmaker representing Ese-Odo as a member of the House and from preventing the applicant from performing his constitutional duties or any legislative function as a member of the Ondo State House of Assembly pending the hearing and determination of the motion on notice in this suit.

The court further restrained the Defendants/Respondents, their officers, agents and servants from stopping the benefits or other entitlements of the claimant as an elected member of the House of Assembly pending the determination of the motion on notice.
