The Ojuromi of Uromi, traditional ruler of Uromi kingdom, HRH Anslem Eidenojie 11, has dragged the state Governor Adams Oshiomhole and 11 others to court over his suspension.
Edo State government had recently suspended him as the traditional ruler of the community for a period of one year.
But the traditional ruler in a suit filed by his counsel, Benjamin Iruobe, wants the court to declare that the action of the 2nd respondent, who is Governor Oshiomhole, amounts to rashness and abuse of office, unconstitutional, unlawful, and without a just cause.
The plaintiff is hinging the suit pursuant to Order 2 and 4 of the Fundamental Rights Procedure Rules 2009 of the administration of Criminal Justice Act 2015 among others. He wants an order of the court for the application of his fundamental rights under the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria in terms of the reliefs sought in the statement in support of the application.
Other respondents in the suit filed before a Benin High Court are the Commissioner of Police in Edo state, Mr Haliru Gwandu, ASP Natuke, Assistant Inspector General of Police – Zone 5.
Others are, Inspector General of Police, Abuja, Nigeria Police Force, Betty Okoebor, Matthew Okoebor and Edo State Executive Council.
