The statement said their reinstatement followed the successful hearing of their petitions by the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC)  which declared that they were unfairly treated.

”The NHRC also agreed with the petitioners and the state government for their reinstatement and settlement of all their outstanding salaries and allowances for the period of their illegal termination of appointment. Consequently, Governor Kayode Fayemi directed that the five be reinstated accordingly,’’the statement said.

Letters communicating their reinstatement were signed by the Head of Service, Dr Olugbenga Faseluka. According to the letter, the reinstatement takes effect from Monday.
