An Ondo State High Court sitting in Akure has granted leave to the deputy governor of Ondo state, Lucky Aiyedatiwa, to serve all processes filed in the suit on the state House of Assembly, its speaker, Olamide Oladiji, and the Clerk, Benjamin Jaiyeola.

Justice O. Akintan-Osadebay ordered that all processes filed in the suit be served on the defendants by posting on the front side wall/fence or entrance gate or any conspicuous area of the Assembly Complex.

He also directed the processes to be pasted on the notice board of the High Court of Justice, Akure.null

The order of Justice Osadebey followed an application by Aiyedatiwa seeking an order for leave of the Court to serve the Assembly by substituted means by posting the court processes on the wall/fence of the Assembly Complex.

Arguing the application, the lead counsel to Aiyedatiwa, Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa, narrated that the Assembly had conducted its affairs illegally and displayed unacceptable acts of legislative rascality by locking the entrance gate of the Assembly in order to evade service of court processes.
