A Federal High Court in Abuja has voided the suspension of Senator representing Borno South Senatorial District, Mohammed Ali Ndume since March this year.
Justice Babatunde Quadri, in a judgment today, ordered Ndume’s reinstatement.
The judge particularly ordered Senate President, Bukola Saraki and the Senate to ensure prompt payment of Ndume’s salaries and allowances.
Justice Quadri said the suspension was an exhibition of lawlessness on the part of the Senate because it was unlawful in the part of the Senate leadership to have suspended Ndume in the first place.
Ndume had approached the court to challenge his suspension for ninety days from the senate via a letter dated March 30, 2017.
