Ayangburen restrained from effecting removal of Regun family head

An interim injunction restraining the Ayangburen of Ikorodu, Oba Kabir Adewale Shotobi, from removing Chief Kameel Adisa Dada as the Head of Regun Family and Regun of Ikorodu has been granted.

The interim injunction was granted by the High Court of Lagos State sitting in Ikorodu, Nigeria.

The court, presided over by Justice Adeniyi Pokanu held that the order subsists pending the hearing and determination of an April 20, 2022, Motion on Notice.

Justice Pokanu arrived at the decision in the suit designated IKD/8738GCMW/2022, filed by Chief Kameeel Adisa Dada and Gbenga Oshin as first and second claimants, suing for themselves and on behalf of the Regun Family of Ikorodu.

Oba Shotebi and Alhaji Jamiu Alao Shittu are the defendants in the suit.

It would be recalled that the claimants obtained the order through an April 20, 2022 motion ex parte filed and moved by their counsel, Yemi Okewoye, seeking two main reliefs.

The reliefs are: “An order of Interim Injunction. restraining the 1st Defendant from removing the 1st Claimant as the Head of Regun Family and Regun of Ikorodu, pending the determination of the Motion on Notice for Interlocutory Injunction already filed in this suit.

“An order of Interim Injunction restraining the 2nd Defendant from parading himself or holding himself out as the Head of Regun Family of Ikorodu”

In the April 26 ruling, Justice Pokanu held that: “I hold that the Claimant/Applicant Motion Ex Parte for Injunctive reliefs in the interim has merit and I hereby order that both parties i.e. Claimants and Defendants are hereby mandated to maintain status quo as at today to the effect that the 1st Claimant is the Head of Regun Family and Regun of Ikorodu as at today 27/04/2022; pending the hearing and determination of the Motion on Notice dated 20/04/2022.

“Parties shall refrain from taking any steps that will undermine the jurisdiction of this Court. I have seen the Claimant’s Form 01 dated 21 April 2022. It is further ordered that the parties are directed to take other steps to ensure full compliance with the directives in the Practice Direction No. 2 of 2019 of this Court. I so order.”

The case has been adjourned till May 10, to hear the Claimants/Applicants’ Motion on Notice.
