WorldStage Newsonline–  The National Industrial Court sitting in Lagos has ordered Speaker Mudashiru Obasa of Lagos State House of Assembly not to obstruct, disturb or frustrate the Chairman of the  state House of Assembly Services Commission (LAHASCOM) in the discharge of his lawful duties.

Justice R. H. Gwandu on Thursday ordered that  the Assembly should also not interfere with  law duties of the LAHASCOM Chairman, Chief Olawale Mogaji, pending determination of a substantive suit filed by Mogaji before the court.

Gwandu directed that status quo ante be maintained in the matter pending hearing and determination of the substantive suit.

The judge gave a ruling on a ex-parte application filed by Mogaji.

Obasa  on July 14 announced sack of Mogaji after  a voice vote by members of the Assembly at a plenary session.

Gwandu  ruled: “Having looked at the processes before me, l hereby order that the defendants should halt any action within the matter, pending the hearing of the motion on notice.

“The interim injunction is granted as prayed.”

He said that the claimant, Mogaji, should   put the defendants on notice, and adjourned the case until Aug. 24 for hearing of the substantive suit.
