In reaction to the plot to impeach him, the Deputy Governor of Ondo State, Agboola Ajayi has approached a Federal High Court in Abuja to stop the impeachment process.
Ajayi sought the declaration of the court to restrain members of the state’s House of Assembly from impeaching him as the deputy governor.
It was reported earlier that some lawmakers in the state Assembly have served an impeachment notice on Ajayi.
The lawmakers signed the impeachment notice during Tuesday’s plenary which was presided over by the Speaker of the Assembly, Mr Bamidele Oleyelogun.
