Counsel to Alhaja Sarat Banire, and head of the Keyamo chambers, Festus Keyamo, has challenged the decision of the Lagos State Government to demolish the property of their client located at No, 24a, Remi Fani-Kayode Street, GRA, Ikeja.
In a petition to the Attorney General and Commissioner of Justice, Lagos State titled: NOTICE OF PENDENCY OF COURT ACTION IN RESPECT OF PLANS TO DEMOLISH PROPERTY OF ALHAJA SARAT BANIRE:
REQUEST FOR STAY OF FURTHER ACTION with a copy made available to THISDAY yesterday, head of the Chamber, Festus Keyamo (SAN) drew his attention to the pendency of a Suit No. FHC/L/CS1736/2017: Alhaja Sarat Banire v. Attorney General of the Federation and Minster for Justice & 3 Ors. and a Motion on Notice for Interlocutory Injunction to restrain the state government from carrying out the planned demolition.
The letter also stated that it is imperative to realise that the pendency of the above-mentioned suit necessitates that all parties must maintain the status quo and not to engage in any act that would foist a fait accompli (state of helplessness) on the Court.
