Dino Hires Ozekhome To Fight Recall

Senator Dino Melaye representing Kogi West Senatorial district in Kogi state has hired Mike Ozekhome SAN to fight his recall in court.

Reports say Ozekhome has filed a suit at the Federal high Court, Abuja, seeking a court injunction to halt Melaye’s recall from the Senate. Dino’s lawyers Friday filed a 33-page legal argument seeking to obtain injunctive reliefs from the court. The application was accompanied by an affidavit of urgency filed by a staff of Ozekhome’s law firm.

According to sources, a panic-stricken Dino had been shopping for a judge in the last 48 hours that could grant an injunction to halt the process after word reached him that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) was meeting to decide on an appropriate response to the submission of more 188,000 signatures to their headquarters on Wednesday from his Kogi West constituents who want him recalled from the Senate.

NigerianEye reports that on Thursday, INEC issued a statement notifying the public that it will be verifying the signatures on July 3rd 2017. The commission also wrote to Sen. Dino Melaye notifying him of the triggered recall in his constituency and the attendant official commencement of the recall exercise in Abuja.
