The Federal High Court sitting in Lagos and presided over by Hon Justice D.E.Osiagor has dismissed the Stay of Execution suit filed by Bola-Audu Innocent and his group in respect of his order issued on 26th October, 2022, in which he restored Comrade Tommy Etim Okon and Comrade Alade Bashir Lawal, as the National President and Secretary-General of Association of Senior Civil Servants of Nigeria (ASCSN) respectively; he emphasized that both officers remain the authentic and legal signatories to the bank accounts of the union.
In a document made available to The Nation Newspaper, Justice Osiagor took exception to the refusal of Bola-Audu and his group to obey his final order of October 26, 2022, and lambasted one Gamaliel Acho, who in a press statement described his order as “judicial advice”.
He also decried the attitude of jumping from one court to another by Bola-Audu and his group, in an attempt to get a favourable ruling on the same matter.
The judge equally described as “wicked”, the court processes filed by Audu and his group on September 6, 2022, which shut off the real parties to the dispute – Comrade Tommy Etim Okon and Comrade Alade Bashir Lawal, National President and Secretary-Generaleral, and presented the police authorities and the banks of the union as respondents.
He said the police and banks had no business with the matter as they were not organs of the association that removed him from office.
Justice Osiagor described the Stay of Execution motion as baseless and shallow and accordingly dismissed it.
