Court halts Lagos Country Club’s Extraordinary General Meeting


A Federal High Court sitting in Lagos has stopped the Lagos Country Club from convening its Extra-Ordinary General Meeting scheduled to hold on Thursday, March 28, 2024.

Justice Ibrahim Kala made the order after Tadeous Idenyi from Pinheiro LP Chambers, moved an exparte motion filed by the Registered Trustees of the Lagos Country Club to the effect.

In the application, the Trustees alleged that the proposed prayers and agenda for the requisitioned EGM contained in the Requisition Notice dated 4th March 2024 are subjudice, the subject-matter having been submitted to court for determination in Suit Nos: FHC/L/CS/301/2024 and FHC/L/CS/321/2024.

The Trustees are therefore contending that going ahead with the meeting would amount to a tacit attempt to prejudge those suits.

Besides, the Trustees further alleged that by the Constitution of the Lagos Country Club, only a duly constituted Management Council can call for an EGM to be held but that the Requisitionist ignored the provision of the Constitution by issuing a Notice of Extra-Ordinary General Meeting themselves calling for the EGM.

After listening to the oral arguments of the applicant’s counsel, the Court ordered as follows:

“An Order of Interim Injunction is granted against the Defendants restraining them, their agents, privies or any other person(s) howsoever described from calling or holding and or convening the Extra-ordinary General Meeting of the Lagos Country Club scheduled for the 28th March, 2024 or any other date particularly, for the purpose of considering the Agenda/Prayers contained in the purported requisition Notice of the Extraordinary General Meeting dated the 4 March, 2024 attached to the Affidavit as Exhibit ‘K’ and which relate to the subject matter in pending suits No. FHC/L/CS/301/2024 and FHC/L/CS/321/2024 pending the hearing and determination of this Motion on Notice dated 21/3/2024 and filed on 22/3/2024.”
