Seriki challenges Olubadan installation in court

11 February 2016, 16:00

Ibadan - The Seriki family, which is laying claim to the Olubadan of Ibadan throne, has filed a suit seeking to nullify the installation of the Balogun Olubadan of Ibadan land, Chief Saliu Adetunji, as the next monarch in Ibadan, Punch reports.

The suit is seeking to restrain the Oyo State Governor, Abiola Ajimobi, the Attorney General of the state and the Olubadan-in-Counoil from recognising or installing the Balogun Olubadan of Ibadan land, High Chief Saliu Adetunji, as the next monarch in Ibadan.

The claimants Chief Adebayo Oyediji, Chief Olalekan Fakunle, Chief Rasidi Abinupagun, and Chief Gabriel Kofoworola, acting on behalf of the Seriki family, filed the suit through their counsel, Abideen Adeniran, before an Oyo State High Court.

Governor Ajimobi’s Special Adviser, Communication and Strategy, Yomi Layinka, reacting to the suit said that the Seriki chiefs had the right to seek redress in court if they felt that they have a genuine case to pursue.

He stated that the state government would wait for the outcome of the court’s pronouncement on the issue.
