Court adjourns Olubadan case till February

29 January 2016, 18:03

Ibadan - The Oyo State High Court of Justice, sitting in Ibadan has adjourned the case brought before it by Chief Adebayo Oyediji against the late Olubadan of Ibadan land,  Oba Samuel Odulana and the Olubadan-in-Council till February 16, 2015.

Oyediji, from the Seriki line, is laying claim to the Olubadan throne after the death of Oba Odulana, ahead of High Chief Saliu Adetunji, who is the current Balogun Olubadan of Ibadan land and favoured by the Olubadan-in-Council to succeed the late traditional ruler.

The plaintiffs are praying for an order restraining the defendants from selecting, appointing or promoting any person to fill the positions of Ekerin Olubadan, Ashipa Olubadan, Osi Olubadan, Otun Olubadan or the Olubadan stool itself existing or that may later exist.

They are also praying the court to grant a restraining order from filling any vacancy in the Ashipa Balogun, Osi Balogun, Otun Balogun and Balogun existing or that may later exist.

Counsel for Oyediji and other Seriki chiefs, Abideen Adeniran, was preparing to move application for the court to set aside the appointments that have been made by the late Olubadan since 2008, when counsel for the Olubadan-in-Council, Michael Lana, informed the court that he was just being involved in the case and that he would need time to study an earlier application before replying it.

His prayer was granted by Justice Muktar Abimbola, even though Adeniran protested against what he described as delay tactic employed by the defence counsel. Adeniran said the application was served eight days before yesterday sitting.
