Ex-Ondo Speaker Withdraws Suit


Former Ondo State House of Assembly Speaker, Ms Jumoke Akindele has withdrawn a suit filed at the State High Court against the Clerk of the Assembly and 13 other lawmakers led by Malachi Coker after she was sacked.

In a March 13 letter addressed to the Registrar, High Court 8 and the defence counsel, Akindele’s counsel applied to withdraw the suit in the interest of the state.

When the case came up on Tuesday, Olumide Ogidan said he has his client’s instruction to withdraw the suit.
Charles Titiloye did not oppose. According to him, he would not be asking for cost against the claimants in the spirit of reconciliation amongst parties.

Justice Aderemi Adegoroye thereafter struck out the suit.

The Assembly was polarised, following Akindele’s impeachment.
