Otodogbame Community Lawsuit: Court postpones judgment

The judgment in the lawsuit filed by residents of Otodogbame Community against the Lagos State Government for demolition of their houses has been postponed.

Justice Sarajudeen Onigbangbo of the Lagos State High Court, Igbosere, postponed the judgment on Tuesday, citing the reason that “issues of jurisdiction raised by the respondents should be addressed.”

After adjourning the case from April 12 to April 25, Justice Onigbangbo, again, adjourned the case to May 25, 2017 for final judgment.

“While I was going through the court processes, I discovered that issues of jurisdiction were raised,” the judge said.

“The applicant will have seven days to file their relevant court processes while the respondents also have seven days to file their court processes in response to the applicant.”
