Lekki Gardens Estate Limited recorded a reverberating and critical triumph on Tuesday the tenth of August in the continuous adventure of Osborne 2 Estate Residents’ Association (OSFRA) against Lekki Gardens, when the Honorable Justice I.N. Oweibo of the Federal High Court who had before conceded an interval request for OSFRA struck out the matter as a maltreatment of court measure. The Court’s choice was further to Lekki Garden’ application to save and strike out/excuse the break request on grounds of material camouflage of realities, absence of locale and maltreatment of court process.
The ex parte request was gotten as a feature of frantic demonstrations by OSFRA to stop the Company from proceeding with its real business inside the domain regardless of a substantial and staying alive request on similar matter by the High Court of Lagos state.
OSFRA’s chiefs drove by an old and experienced attorney Chinwe Ezenwa-Mba and its Trustees in their standard way of ignoring law and order and comprised authority, acted derisively against the High Court of Lagos State by obtrusively resisting its request in initiating the case with similar Parties and topic at the Federal High Court; a baldfaced instance of “Gathering Shopping”
By this choice in saving the Order and striking out the Suit, the Federal High Court concurred with Lekki Gardens that:
- The ex parte request be saved as it should not to have been allowed in the principal instance
- The Suit was a maltreatment of Court Process by OSFRA, it’s Executives and it’s Counsel Kemi Pinherio, SAN
- That It (the Court) needed purview to engage the suit
The Court in its astuteness granted expenses against OSFRA for Lekki Gardens Estate Limited
