Seriki asks court to jail Olubadan-designate for contempt

29 February 2016, 18:54

Ibadan - The head of Seriki clan in Ibadan, Adebayo Oyediji, has asked the Oyo State High Court in Ibadan to charge the Olubadan-designate, Saliu Adetunji, with contempt of court.

Oyediji accused Olubadan-in-Council of flagrant disobedience to the rule of law which, he said, was the bedrock of a sane society.

He alluded to an earlier restraining injunction granted by Hon. Justice M. O. Ishola on November 21, 2008.

The Olubadan-in-Council had declared Adetunji as the next Ibadan king following the demise of Oba Samuel Odulana on January 19.

A March 4, 2016 date has been fixed for Adetunji’s coronation.

But Oyediji is challenging the decision, saying he should be crowned as the next Ibadan monarch.

Oyediji is praying the court to compel Adetunji and the Olubadan-in-Council to obey the 2008 injunction, which he said restrained them from elevating any High Chief to the position of the Olubadan of Ibadan.
