Ambode Vs Banire: Banire's 90-Yr Old Mother Sues Ambode Over Home Demolishing
The 90-year-old mother of the National Legal Adviser of the All Progressive Congress, APC, Muiz Banire, Sarat Banire, is not ready to go down without a fight.
She has dragged the Lagos state government before the Federal High Court in Lagos seeking an order restraining the government or its agents from demolishing her house located at 24a, Remi Fani-Kayode Street, GRA, Ikeja.
It will be noted that officials of the Ministry of Town Planning and Urban Development had on Tuesday served a 48-hour demolition notice on the building.
Alhaja Banire, through her lawyer, Festus Keyamo, SAN, requested for stay of further action on her property.
While urging the commissioner to advise the government against resorting to self-help on the matter, Keyamo cited legal precedences where courts frowned at executive rascality and impunity while cases were pending in courts.
