Ibadan Obas dare Olubadan, reject calls to return to the palace

The Ibadan Obas have rejected  calls by Olubadan of Ibadanland, Oba Saliu Adetunji  urging them to drop their crowns and return to the palace, as the battle against  the Olubadan crown continues .

The supposed members of his council under the aegis of Olubadan-in-council and promoted Baales on Wednesday kicked against the Olubadan, describing the directive as hypocritical and an aspersion on the review of the laws governing traditional institution in Oyo State, which approves their installation as beaded crown wearing kings.

Oba Adetunji had in a reaction to the various accusations levelled against him by the Ibadan Obas asked the Olubadan-in-council members among them to remove their crowns and come back to the palace to perform their roles as members of his council.

The Ibadan Obas, led by Otun Olubadan, Oba (Dr.) Lekan Balogun faulted the highly referred monarch, insisting that none of the issues raised in their allegations against the “nefarious activities going on in his palace such as non-screening of prospective Mogajis (family heads) and Baales (village head) by the council before installation. The cash and carry manner by which people now get positions of Mogaji and Baale, leading to the appointment of more than one Mogaji from the same compound and relinquishing of the palace authority to ‘Olori’ (the wife of the monarch) among others have been answered.”

The Ibadan Obas maintained that events had overtaken the court judgement being referred to, noting that aside the fact that there’s an appeal pending on the same judgement, the issue of review of the traditional law in the state had since become a statewide one, encompassing Ibadan and other cities and towns which till now has not been disputed.

They also averred that the same reform which conferred on them the new titles of His Royal Majesties and Highnesses also elevated the Olubadan to His Imperial Majesty from
