Court dismisses case against NIESV, official



A Lagos High Court has dismissed the suit filed against the Nigerian Institution of Estate Surveyors and Valuers, NIESV, and Johnbull Amayaevbo by Olusola Enitan, who was expelled from the institution for alleged professional misconduct.

Justice O.H Oshodi dismissed the suit in a 13-page judgment.

Enitan had sued the institution and joined its chairman of Profession Practice Committee, Johnbull Amayaevbo, for what he termed denial of his fundamental human rights to a fair hearing before his unlawful expulsion.

The case, filed on February 4, 2020 was determined by Justice O.H. Oshodi who delivered judgment on February 9, 2021.

Justice Oshodi, after listening to both the respondents and the claimant through their lawyers, said the claimant failed to explore the window of opportunity given to him by the professional body to be heard on the matter of his expulsion.

He then dismissed the suit based on the conclusion that the applicant was not denied a fair hearing.
