The judge was said to have travelled to Abuja for another official function.
In the suit, Ogungbeje is arguing that Nyako’s impeachment was a clear departure from the due process of law and is praying the court for an order reinstating him as governor.
He is seeking a declaration that the setting up of a seven-member panel by the chief judge of the state after an order stopping the House of Assembly from constituting the panel was biased.
According to him, it was also a violation of Nyako’s right to fair hearing and fair trial as guaranteed under Section 36 of the 1999 Constitution (as amended).
The lawyer is also praying the court to declare that the constitution of the panel by both the House of Assembly and the chief judge against a subsisting order of court was contemptuous, undemocratic and a flagrant violation of the constitution. He is further praying the court to nullify Nyako’s impeachment of July 15. He says the failure of the respondents to serve the impeachment notice personally on Nyako was a breach of his (Nyako’s) right to fair hearing and fair trial.
