A Federal High Court in Abuja has refused to stop the
current impeachment plot against Governor Ayo Fayose
of Ekiti State.
The 19 All Progressives Congress (APC) lawmakers in
the state have vowed to impeach Fayose after accusing
him of gross misconduct.
The governor and his deputy, Kolapo Olusola , prayed
the court for an interim order to stop he impeachment
notice served on them.
However, the presiding judge, Justice Ahmed
Mohammed, denied the plea and only permitted their
application to serve court documents on the legislators,
who are defendants in the case.
Mohammed also ordered the defendants, including the
Chief Judge of the state, Justice Ayodeji Daramola , to
appear in the court on Thursday, April 16, 2015.
Other defendants in the suit are the Inspector-General
of Police, Suleiman Abba, and the Independent National
Electoral Commission (INEC).
The impeachment plot, which Fayose initially dismissed
as a joke, has led to chaos in Ekiti after a riot broke
out leaving one person dead.
