The Lagos State High Court sitting in Ikeja on Wednesday adjourned the hearing of former Governor Ambode’s suit filed against lawmakers till November 20, 2019.

Ambode, on Tuesday, had filed a suit to stop the State House of Assembly from probing him over the 820 mass transit buses purchased by his administration.

The hearing was postponed on the request of Adenike Osinowo, the counsel to the lawmakers, to enable her study the application and respond with a file.

Osinowo noted that she was served with the court process late Tuesday night, which was a short period for her to respond.

After accepting the request of the adjournment, Justice Akinsanya ordered the ex-governor and the lawmakers to maintain peace pending the hearing of the suit scheduled to hold next month.
