21 Kings Lose Crowns As Oyo Govt Settle Out Of Court

Oyo State Governor Abiola Ajimobi, elevated and crowned obas in Ibadanland during his tenure, fifty-three months after a State High Court on Tuesday set aside the gazette to the effect of being dethroned..

The state Governor, Seyi Makinde, who inherited the matter, had opted for an out-of-court settlement to restore peace between the Olubadan, Oba Saliu Adetunji, and the estranged chiefs.

The appellate court ordered that the case be returned for trial before another judge of the state High Court.

However the parties in an out of court settlement dated 14 November, 2019, with number M/317/2017 and signed by Michael Lana for High Chief Rasheed Ladoja as claimant and the state Director of Civil Litigation, Mr Laolu Ogunniran, for the defendants, agreed that the right to wear beaded crown and coronet granted by the state government during the pendency of the suit had been revoked.
