The Kingmakers of the ancient town of Ogbomoso installed a former Pastor at the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Prince Ghandi Afolabi Laoye as the new Soun of Ogbomoso on Friday.

The Areago High Chief, Sobalaje Otolorin led the installation that took place at Abata. Laoye thereafter proceeded into seclusion to commence traditional rites attached to the throne.

The Oyo state High Court in Ogbomoso had on Thursday restrained Governor Seyi Makinde, the Attorney General of the State and Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Matters or anyone else from presenting any instrument of office in any form of ceremony or issuing certificate of installation to Olaoye until the final determination of the mandatory injunction already filed before the court.

He further proclaimed the new Oba as His Imperial Majesty Oba Ghandi Afolabi Olaoye Orumogege III.
