Court jails three PDP leaders for contempt

A Federal High Court sitting in Lagos on Wednesday, ordered three chieftains of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Ogun state to be remanded in prison to bring a new twist to the protracted crisis raging the party in the state.

The three chieftains are Chief Ireti Oniyide, Honourable Faisiu Bakenne and Mr Tunde Oladunjoye (who is now a media aide to the Minister of Agriculture, Mr Akin Adesina.

The presiding Judge, Justice Charles Archibong, in a ruling on contempt proceedings against the three party leaders held that they should be remanded in prison custody for six months for their continued violation of an order of the court contained in a May 2nd, 2012 judgment.

The harmonised executive committee of the PDP in Ogun state led by Chief Adebayo Dayo and Alhaji Semiu Sodipo had initiated the contempt proceedings on the said PDP chieftains and the state’s Independent Electoral Commission (OGSIEC).

The applicants accused those cited for contempt of continually subverting the order of court by dealing with the party through other bodies aside the Adebayo Dayo Executive Committee, which the court had declared as the authentic management body of the party in the judgment, delivered in May.
