Osun Lawyer Takes OSIEC, Assembly Speaker, Others To Court Over LG Election

by Debo Wale

A former Chairman of the Nigeria Bar Association, Ilesa Branch, Mr. KANMI AJIBOLA, has filed a contempt charge against the chairman of the Osun State Independent Electoral Commission, Mr SEGUN OLADITAN; all members of the electoral body and the Speaker of the state House of Assembly, Mr TIMOTHY OWOEYE.

AJIBOLA had earlier approached an Osun State High Court, sitting in Ilesa, asking for orders restraining the assembly from amending the State Electoral Law, and OSIEC from conducting local government elections.

He subsequently filed Form 48 containing consequences of disobedience to order of court at the State High Court against the OSIEC Chairman and others over the proposed October 15 local government election, when a matter regarding the election was already before the court.
