A Federal High Court in Abuja has ordered the reinstatement of Obasi Odefa as a member and also as the deputy speaker of Ebonyi House of Assembly.


The court also restored the seats of two other lawmakers, Ngozi Eziulo (representing Afikpo North East) and Oliver Osi (representing Ivo).


The court order followed an ex-parte motion, filed by the three lawmakers, challenging the declaration of their seats vacant and the removal of Odefa as the deputy speaker last month.


However, the presiding judge, Inyang Ekwo barred the House, its speaker, and the clerk from carrying out any action that would affect the membership of the three lawmakers and also ordered all parties in the matter to maintain the status quo that hitherto existed before the House took the controversial decisions against the trio.
