The installation of 21 kings by Governor Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State has been nullified by an Oyo State High Court presided over by Justice Olajumoke Aiki on Friday.
The court 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.
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.
It would be recalled 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.
The court gave the ruling after the Olubadan of Ibadan land, Oba Saliu Adetunji, had sued the Oyo State GovernorAbiola Ajimobi and 23 others, over their involvements in the crowning of 21 kings in Ibadan on August 27, 2017.
