The Ondo State High Court has terminated a contempt suit against the Speaker of the State House of Assembly, Bamidele Oleyelogun, and three others.

The court had served the leadership of the assembly contempt charges for their failure to lift the suspension placed on four lawmakers and payment of their entitlements.

Oleyelogun; the Clerk, Bode Adeyelu; Parliamentary Secretary, Abayomi Akinruntan and the Deputy-Majority leader, Oladiji Adesanmi were served form 49 (contempt of court committal) by the Ondo State High Court.

But the leadership of the assembly played a fast one as they lifted the suspension order barely 72 hours to the hearing of the contempt suit against them in court.

At the resume of the suit, Justice Samuel Bola while ruling noted that the termination becomes imperative following evidence that the speaker and the house had complied with his earlier order to reinstate the four suspended lawmakers.

He said that since the warring parties agreed to an amicable position, the suit is therefore terminated.
