The Lagos State High Court sitting in Ikorodu has barred Mr. Adeniran Olusegun Shodipo, the 3rd Defendant from holding himself out as the Regun of Ikorodu, Lagos pending the determination of a suit concerning the Regun Chieftaincy stool.

Justice Adeniyi Pokanu had on July 8, 2022 earlier granted an interlocutory injunction restraining one Alhaji Jamiu Shittu from holding himself out as the Head of Regun Family.

The suit, marked IKD/87380CM/2022,

But, following an application, Justice Pokanu added Shodipo as a party on October 17, 2022, making him the third defendant.

The claimants, through their counsel Yemi Okewoye then brought an application praying the court to extend the interlocutory injunction to cover Shodipo.

Granting their prayer, Justice Pokanu held: “The order of the court made on 8th July, 2022 is extended to bind the 3rd Defendant (Shodipo) to wit: Parties are mandated to maintain status quo ante belum pending the final determination of this sut i.e. state of affairs duly recognised by the Court of Appeal in its judgment in Appeal No CA/S/111/2003 delivered on 27th April, 2007 and recognsed by this court as at 27th of April, 2022 when this court gave injunctive anders restraining the Defendent.
