Breaking: Court sacks 21 Ibadan kings installed by Governor Ajimobi

- A High Court sitting in Ibadan, Oyo state has nullified the installation of 21 kings by Governor Abiola Ajimobi

- The presiding judge, Justice Olajumoke Aiki also declared as illegal the review of the 1957 Olubadan Chieftaincy Declaration and other Related Chieftaincies in Ibadan land

- Governor Ajimobi had last year elevated 21 Ibadan high chiefs to monarchs

An Oyo state High Court presided over by Justice Olajumoke Aiki on Friday, January 19, sacked 21 Ibadan monarch installed last year by Governor Isiaka Ajimobi.

Punch reports that Justice Aiki declared the review of the 1957 Olubadan Chieftaincy Declaration and other Related Chieftaincies in Ibadan land by the Justice Akintunde Boade Review Commission, which was set up by the Oyo state government, as unconstitutional, illegal, null, void and of no effect.

We gathered that the commission had recommended among others the creation of several monarchs in Ibadan which led to the installation of 21 kings by the state Governor Abiola Ajimobi.

But the Osi Olubadan of Ibadan land and former governor of the state, Rashidi Ladoja, challenged the composition and recommendations of the commission in court, joining Ajimobi as co-defendant.

While delivering judgment, Aiki held that wearing of beaded crowns are beyond the purview of sections 10, 12 and 25 of the Oyo state chiefs’ law, stating that section 25 of the chiefs law could not be treated in isolation to the provisions of parts two and three of the chiefs laws.

The court also said provisions of parts two and three of the chiefs laws, particularly Sections 10, 12 and 25 did not give power to the governor to review the Olubadan chieftaincy declaration, while also restraining the government from accepting and implementing the reports of the commission.

Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had previously reported that the crisis engulfing the Olubadan chieftaincy declaration escalated as the 21 Ibadan kings installed by the Oyo state governor, Abiola Ajimobi, on August 27, 2017 issued a dethronement notice to the Olubadan of Ibadanland, Oba Saliu Adetunji.
