The ousted Speaker of the Ogun State House of Assembly, Olakunle Oluomo, has taken legal action by filing a suit in the state High Court to challenge his recent impeachment.
Oluomo, who faced allegations of arrogance and highhandedness leading to his removal on Tuesday, contends that the impeachment lacked due process, prompting his recourse to the court.
Despite being previously taken to court by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) over alleged financial misappropriation amounting to 2.5 billion naira, Oluomo was impeached by a majority of 18 lawmakers out of the 26-member assembly.
In response to the accusations against him, Oluomo has initiated legal proceedings against his colleagues, asserting the illegality of his impeachment.
While acknowledging a lack of support from fellow lawmakers since his reelection as Speaker for a second term, Oluomo remains steadfast in challenging the process and legality of his removal through the legal system.
