An Ondo State High Court yesterday terminated the contempt suit against the Speaker of the Ondo state House of Assembly, Bamidele Oleyelogun, Clerk, Mr Bode Adeyelu and two principal officers of the House.

The other two officers joined in the contempt case are the Parliamentary Secretary, Abayomi Akinruntan and Deputy Majority Leader, Oladiji Adesan.

Justice Samuel Bola terminated the suit after the warring parties agreed to an amicable position following evidence that the speaker and the House had complied with his earlier order to reinstate the four suspended lawmakers.

The court had earlier quashed the suspension of four lawmakers, Iroju Ogundeji, Favour Tomowewo, Adewinle Williams and Tomide Akinrinbido by their colleagues.

They were reinstated by the House on Monday though the contempt suit had already been instituted before the court against the speaker and three others.

Justice Bola commended efforts of the Ondo State Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Titiloye Charles in the amicable resolution of the crisis.

The Attorney General, Titiloye Charles and the lead counsel to the four lawmakers, Banjo Ayenakin thanked the court for resolving the crisis.
