Olubadan allegedly drags Governor Ajimobi, others to court over new Obas

As a result of the involvement of Oyo state Governor Senator Abiola Ajimobi in the coronation of the 21 new Obas in Ibadan on August 27. The Olubadan of Ibadan land, Oba Saliu Adetunji, has allegedly dragged to court, the Governor, the 21 new Obas, attorney general and commissioner for justice and commissioner for local government and chieftaincy matters.

Recalled that the government has recently elevated and installed 8 high chiefs as well as 13 Baales to kingship status.

The suit which was file number I/1077/2017, at High Court of Justice, the Oyo State on September 19, 2017, the Olubadan of Ibadan is claiming that the governor violated the Chiefs Laws CAP 28 of the state, saying that Ajimobi does not possess the power and authority to confer anybody the right to wear a beaded crown and coronet.

The monarch, also claimed that the crowning of the kings is illegal and void since the governor did not consult with the Oyo State Council of Obas and Chiefs.

The monarch is seeking an order setting aside the Gazette Numbers 14 and 15 of Volume 42 of August 23 and 24, 2017 made by the governor and which conferred the right to wear crown and coronet on the elevated high chiefs and Baales.

The monarch therefore prays the court to set aside the installation of the new kings.
