BREAKING NEWS: Supreme Court rules in Jegede's favour

The Supreme Court has struck out stay of execution motions filed by Biyi Poroye and ordered the Appeal court to go ahead with ruling on the case between Eyitayo Jegede and Jimoh Ibrahim.

The Supreme Court said there was no way it could stop the second panel from ruling on the case between Jegede and Jimoh Ibrahim after the first panel stepped down.

Supreme Court justice Walter Onnoghen told Poroye’s counsel Beluolisa Nwofor : “Tell us where in the constitution why we should punish those justices. You can’t box the lower court into a corner and be asking the Supreme Court for withdrawal of motions.”
