The Oyo State Government on Tuesday secured an injunction restraining the sacked council chairmen in the 33 local government areas and 35 local council development areas from forceful takeover of the council secretariats in the state
But the embattled chairman of the Association of Local Government of Nigeria in Oyo State, Ayodeji Abass-Aleshinloye, said the sacked members of ALGON in the state would continue to perform their official duties.
The order restraining the sacked council chairmen from parading themselves as council bosses was granted by the Oyo State High Court sitting in Ibadan, the state capital.
But the Chairmen are saying no going back..One if them Akeshinloye said
“The injunction that the state government is parading is a kangaroo injunction. They went to a state high court; they did not obtain the order from the Federal High Court. I don’t know why they are just behaving so illegally.
“Of course, all of us (the sacked chairmen), have access to our offices; we have been in our offices since yesterday. Throughout Oyo State we carried out our duties without hindrance, except in the Ibadan North and North-East. Those at the Egbeda Local Government Area were accosted on their way from the council secretariat.”
