The Otun Olubadan of Ibadan, Senator Rashidi Ladoja has dragged the Oyo state Governor, Seyi Makinde; the Olubadan of Ibadanland, Oba Lekan Balogun and the ten newly elevated beaded crown-wearing Obas to court over the chieftaincy title.
The suit was filed at the Oyo State High Court, Ring Road, Ibadan last Thursday.
Recall that on June 22 Makinde approved the elevation following the recommendation of Olubadan of Ibadanland, Oba Lekan Balogun, who is the prescribed and consenting authority.
Governor Makinde last Friday presented the Staff of Office to the new Obas.
The new Obas are Owolabi Olakulehin; Tajudeen Ajibola; Eddy Oyewole; Lateef Adebimpe; Biodun Kola-Daisi; Kola Adegbola; Hamidu Ajibade; Olubunmi Isioye; Bayo Akande and Abiodun Azeez while Ladoja, who had earlier rejected the elevation was conspicuously absent at the ceremony.
No date has been fixed for hearing of the suit.
