Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, Chairman of the state’s Judicial Panel of Enquiry and two others have been slammed with lawsuits over likelihood of bias in setting up the panel.
The plaintiffs, Adekunle Augustine and Simeon A. Akogwu, are praying the Federal High Court, Lagos Division to disband the panel on the ground that Sanwo-Olu, being a party in the matter, did not exercise his power in public interest by setting up the panel.
Defendants in the suit marked FHC/L/CS/1572/20 and dated November 11, 2020 include the Lagos State governor, judicial panel of enquiry, chairman of the panel and the attorney-general of Lagos State as the first, second, third and fourth defendants respectively.
The plaintiffs, in the suit, filed through their counsel, Samuel Adams, are asking the court for a declaration that Lagos State governor, being a party to the matter under investigation, cannot set up a panel to investigate self as the outcome of the panel will be in his favour, among others.
No date has yet been fixed by the court for hearing of the case.
