A High Court sitting in Osogbo has ordered the Commission of Enquiry on Disturbance of Public Peace set up by Governor Rauf Aregbesola to stop the investigation of Senator Iyiola Omisore, candidate in the just conducted guber election in the state.
Chairman of CEDPP, Justice Moshood Adeigbe, disclosed this at the resumed hearing of the panel in Osogbo on Wednesday that the panel had received an interim order from the court, halting it from probing Omisore, pending the ruling on the application he filed before the court.
Counsel to the petitioner, Mr. Lekan Olayiwola, urged the panel to allow the petitioner to go on with the hearing of the matter despite the interim order of the court.
He adjourned the sitting till August19, 2014, when the court would have determined the application before it.
Aregbesola had set up the panel following an alleged of assault on former Governor, Isiaka Adeleke by Omisore and the Minister of Police Affairs, Alhaji Jelili Adesiyan.
However, Omisore, who refused to appear before the panel headed to court where he got an interim order.
Adeleke alleged that Omisore, Adesiyan and one Sogo Agboola assaulted him when he went to a hotel in Osogbo, where the PDP delegation who came to the state to conduct the party’s primary election had invited all governorship aspirants to a meeting.
Adeleke, who is now a chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress in the state, also alleged that Omisore and Adesiyan threatened to kill him during the meeting.
