The Court of Ap­peal, Ado Ekiti Di­vision has ordered fresh trial of a suit filed by the Edemo of Ado Ekiti, Chief Bamidele Aduloju, to restrain the Ewi of Ado Ekiti, Oba Rufus Adejugbe, from suspending or deposing him.

Justice Boloukuromo Moses Ugo, who delivered the lead judgment, set aside the judgment of an Ado Ekiti High Court which dismissed the suit, saying the lower court was wrong in its decisions on Aduloju’s statement of claim and statement of oath and consequent dismissal of the suit.

The Appeal Court panel, which also had Jus­tices Adzira Msheila and Ayobode Lokulo-Sodipe, in the unanimous judg­ment, ordered: “The said suit is hereby restored to the Cause List of the Ekiti State High Court for trial on its merit by any other judge beside O.I.O Ogunyemi that the Chief Judge may deem fit to assign it.”

Justice Ogunyemi of an Ado Ekiti High Court had last year dismissed the suit, no HAD/226/2011, saying Aduloju’s state­ment of claim did not dis­close a reasonable cause of action and that his witness statement on oath accom­panying his originating processes was fundamen­tally defective.
