A Federal High Court sitting in Osogbo has granted an order of mandamus to compel the National Assembly to commence impeachment process against President Muhammadu Buhari, based on some alleged constitutional breaches.
Justice Maureen Onyetenu gave the ex parte order on Wednesday, following a motion filed before her by the Chairman, Nigeria Bar Association, Ilesa branch, Mr. Kanmi Ajibola; and a human rights activist, Mr. Suleiman Adeniyi.
They had written to the National Assembly asking that the President be impeached for the continuous killings in the country however their letter was not addressed.
They then proceeded to court asking it to compel the National Assembly to begin impeachment proceedings against the President.
They alleged that the President did not possess a certificate to be qualified as a President and should be impeached based on this and other alleged impeachable offences.
The judge, in her ruling, granted the leave to compel the National Assembly to commence impeachment process against the President.
