An Ondo State High Court sitting in Akure has ordered the state house of assembly to reinstate the Deputy Speaker of the Ondo state House of Assembly, Iroju Ogundeji and two other lawmakers who were recently suspended.
The trio were suspended over alleged misconducts by the Assembly.
The court reversed the their suspension and ordered Ondo State House of Assembly to immediately pay all their entitlements and also pay them five million naira compensation to each of them.
Justice Ademola Bola,while giving the ruling, maintained that it was illegal to prevent an elected legislator from duly representing his/her constituency.
The house had suspended the three pro-Ondo Deputy Governor lawmakers, namely: Rt.Hon Iroju Ogundeji, Hon. Wale Williams from Ondo west constituency 2 and Hon. Favour Tomomewo from Ilaje 2.
The anti-impeachment lawmakers were suspended for refusing to sign the impeachment notice served on deputy governor who defected from All Progressives Congress(APC).
