The presiding judge, Justice Rita Ofili-Ajumogobia, who granted the motion, ordered the governor, the state Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice, lawmakers and the National Universities Commission (NUC) to stop any action on the scrapping of the institution  pending the determination of the suit before the court.

Justice Ajumogobia said, “all actions on the merger of the third (TASUED) and fifth (Olabisi Onabanjo University, Ago-Iwoye) defendants are hereby suspended until the final determination of the Motion on Notice dated February 9, 2012.”

In the suit, the plaintiffs  include Adewunmi  Tosin, Olayemi  Bose, Salaudeen Kazeem Olamilekan, Abiodun Sunday and Uthman Tajudeen Olusegun.

The governor, Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice, TASUED, Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), TASUED branch; Olabisi Onabanjo University (OOU), Ago-Iwoye; Tai Solarin College of Education, NUC and Ogun State House of Assembly were joined as respondents in the suit.

Counsel for the plaintiffs, A.A Ogunba, had on Feburary 9, 2012, filed a motion ex-parte on behalf of the applicants.

Justice Ofili-Ajumogobia also ordered that “the defendants shall attend court at the return date to show cause why the applicants’ prayers should not be granted.”
