Monarch May Be Docked Over Supremacy Battle

Monarch May Be Docked Over Supremacy Battle

Gov. Ayodele Fayose

Sequel to the persistent supremacy battle between them, a first class traditional ruler, the Ogoga of Ikere Ekiti, Oba Adejimi Adu, may sue
his rival, the Olukere of Ikere, Oba Ganiyu Obasoyin , to seek redress and lay the long-drawn tussle  to rest.

Olukere has been having a running battle with Ogoga over who is the real king, which culminated in the tearing of Oba Ganiyu’s billboard
erected in the heart of the town last week.

Briefing newsmen in Ikere Ekiti on Friday on the recent protest over the destruction of the billboard, which Olukere had blamed Governor
Ayodele Fayose of allegedly supervised , Ogoga pleaded with the people to eschew violence, assuring that such won’t be tolerated again in the town.

The monarch warned his rival to stop parading himself as a king, saying he remains a classless chief, whose job is to appease the gods.

“Olukere is being misled because none of his predecessor   flexed muscle with me. But if all alternative means of resolving this matter
fail, then I shall go to court to seek redress, because I can’t allow this to continue”.

The Odolofin of Ikere kingdom, Chief Ayodele Alonge, who spoke on behalf of Ogoga-in-Council,  insisted that his rival, who is laying
claim to founding the town remain the chief priest and occupy number 44 in the chieftaincy hierarchy.
