Balogun to become Olubadan as Court dismisses suit against emergence


An Oyo High Court on Tuesday dismissed the suit challenging the consent judgment that nullified the promotion of Ibadan High Chiefs as Obas under the late Senator Abiola Ajimobi led government in the state.

The judgement okayed the appointment of Lekan Balogun as the new Olubadan of Ibadan.

It had earlier been reported that controversies surrounded the appointment, approval, and announcement of Oba Lekan Balogun, as the new Olubadan.

For Balogun to be appointed, Oyo Governor Seyi Makinde asked the kingmakers to discontinue the case.

The High Chiefs – promoted Obas – were in court to challenge the consent judgment which set aside the gazette that recognised them as Obas.

According to Radio Nigeria, Chief Judge of Oyo State, Justice Munta Abimbola, gave the verdict at a sitting at Court One of the Oyo State High Court.
