A Federal High Court in Abuja has refused to stop the current impeachment plot against Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti State.

The 19 All Progressives Congress (APC) lawmakers in the state have vowed to impeach Fayose after accusing him of gross misconduct.

The governor and his deputy, Kolapo Olusola, prayed the court for an interim order to stop he impeachment notice served on them.

However, the presiding judge, Justice Ahmed Mohammed, denied the plea and only permitted their application to serve court documents on the legislators, who are defendants in the case.

Mohammed also ordered the defendants, including the Chief Judge of the state, Justice Ayodeji Daramola, to appear in the court on Thursday, April 16, 2015.

Other defendants in the suit are the Inspector-General of Police, Suleiman Abba, and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

The impeachment plot, which Fayose initially dismissed as a joke, has led to chaos in Ekiti after a riot broke out leaving one person dead.
