The Speaker of the Ondo state of Assembly, Bamidele Oleyelogun and three others at the House today escaped being jailed by a State High Court sitting in Akure.

Justice Samuel Bola quashed the suit after warring parties agreed to an amicable position following evidence that the speaker and the house had complied with his earlier order to reinstate the four suspended lawmakers.

The court had earlier lifted the suspension of four lawmakers, Favour Tomowewo, Adewinle Williams, Tomide Akinrinbido and Ogundeji Iroju by their colleagues.

They were reinstated by the house on Monday though the contempt suit had already been instituted before the court against the speaker and three others

Justice Bola lauded the efforts of the Ondo state Attorney General and Justice Commissioner, Titiloye Charles in the amicable resolution of the crisis.

He promised that the outstanding emoluments of the four lawmakers would be paid as soon as possible.

The Presiding Judge also commended the speaker, Bamidele Oleyelogun and other members for appearing in court to honour the court summon.

The Attorney General, Titiloye Charles and the lead counsel to the four lawmakers, Banjo Ayenakin thanked court for resolving the crisis in a matured situation.
