The presiding judge, Justice Y.A. Akinsanya ordered the ex-governor and the lawmakers to maintain the “status quo” pending the hearing of the suit. 

The adjournment followed a request by the lawmakers’ lawyer, Adenike Osinowo, for time to study Ambode’s suit and file an appropriate response. 

According to Osinowo, the court processes were served on her late on Tuesday. 

Justice Akinsanya had on Tuesday declined hearing an ex parte application by Ambode’s lawyer, Mr Tayo Oyetibo (SAN), to make orders of injunction against the lawmakers.
