Ibadan Obas Set To Appeal Court Judgement

The Ibadan high chiefs on Thursday met at Mapo Hall and vowed to use both “legal and legitimate” means to retrieve their crowns.

This is coming after Oyo State High Court judgment revoked the beaded crowns of 21 new kings promoted by the former governor of the state, Senator Abiola Ajimobi.

The high chiefs who are members of Olubadan-in-Council said without equivocation that those who were behind the judgment merely wanted to destabilize Ibadan but they would not allow them.

While kicking against the court judgment which they described as shaving the head of a person in his absence, they dissociated themselves from the out of court settlement option which the court advised saying it was done without their inputs and there’s no way they could accept such.

Justice Aderonke Aderemi of the State High Court, MKO Abiola Way (former Ring Road), Ibadan had in his judgment asked the Obas to drop their crowns in view of the setting aside of all the gazettes relating to their promotion consequent upon the out of court settlement said to have been agreed upon by the parties in the suit.
