She said the order of interim injunction was for a period of seven days by effluxion of time automatically lapses on 21st August 2015 following upon which the said order of injunction will thereby stand vacated accordingly.
Justice Ogungbesan had earlier found merit in the ex-parte application of Odupitan Eniola seeking an order of interim injunction restraining the Lagos State Government or its agents from performing the coronation ceremony on August 15th.
In a motion on notice, the Lagos State Government, had sought to quash the earlier order of interim injunction made by the court halting the coronation ceremony.
