Sanwo-Olu, Onigbanjo, Others May Face Contempt over Installation of Monarch in Ikoga-Zebbe – Sano Ruling House

The Sano Ruling House of Ikoga Zebbe has said that the Governor of Lagos State, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the State Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Mr. Moyosore  Onigbanjo, Commissioner for Chieftaincy and Local Government Affairs, Badagry Chieftaincy Committee and its secretary, Mr. Samuel Amosu may face contempt proceedings over their role in the installation of Prince Fabiyi Jimoh Athanhode as the Aholu of Ikoga Zebbe in Badagry Local Government Area of the state.

This was revealed in a letter written to the governor on August 3, by the Sano Ruling House of Ikoga Zebbe.

The ruling house represented by Mr. Stephen Akapo Dosa, Andrew Bokor and Akowanu Moses are the claimants in a suit against the governor and others, accusing the defendants of lack of respect for rule of law and judicial system, thereby promoting anarchy and chaos in the community.

The suit pending before the state High Court, Badagry, bothered on whom to ascend the throne of Aholu of Ikoga Zebbe.

The claimant alleged that despite the pendency of the suit, which is yet to be determined by the court, the defendants through the Badagry Local Government Chairman, Olusegun Adeniran Onilude, allegedly presented a letter of appointment to Athanhode as the new Aholu of Ikoga-Zebbe on the 29th day of July, 2020.

However, the claimants had threatened to file contempt proceedings against the governor and others over their alleged action on the matter.

Meanwhile, Justice S. Shonaika has fixed August 26 for further hearing.
