Court strikes out Otodogbame community’s contempt suit against Ambode

Justice S. A. Onigbangbo of the Lagos State High Court, Igbosere, has struck out contempt proceedings against the Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, stating that “the court lacks the jurisdiction to charge the governor of the state because of the immunity he enjoys.”

The judge further said that “if the governor had truly ordered the forceful eviction and demolition of the second applicant, he undermined the principles of the rule of law and the same process which put him in office in the first place.”
