The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice and the Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Matters were joined in the suit as co- defendants.
The claimants in the suit No. HOY/41/2023 are: High Chief Yusuf Ayoola, (Basorun of Oyo), High Chief Wakeel Oyedepo, (Lagunna), High Chief Amuda Yusuf (Akinniku), High Chief Waheed Oyetunji (Aare Ago Basorun) and Chief Gbadebo Mufutau (Baale Alapo).
The kingmakers, in the suit filed on their behalf by their Lead Counsel, Mr Kazeem Sobaloju, after the withdrawal and subsequent striking out of a similar case by the court, had approached the court on Thursday with a fresh suit.
Sobaloju reminded the court that he had two pending applications filed on Nov. 1 on the subject matter before the court.
He said that the counter affidavit to the notice of preliminary objection and the interim injunction were served on him barely 45 minutes ago.
Sobaloju prayed the court for maintenance of the status quo in spite of the notice of the preliminary objection filed by the defence counsel.
He equally said that he had filed a counter affidavit to the notice of the preliminary objection
