Court Sacks Osun monarch appointed by Adeleke

There is crisis in Ola community in Ejigbo Local Government Area of Osun State after an High Court presided over by Justice Lawrence Arojo sacked Oba Johnson Ajiboye appointed by Governor Ademola Adeleke as Olola of Ola.

The Nation reports there have been crisis in the community since Adeleke on January 3rd, 2024 appointed Ajiboye at the State Executive meeting despite a pending court case and restraining orders.


The head of kingmakers, Dr Femi Fasanya, also shunned and disowned the installation process of Oba Johnson Ajiboye in January 2024.

Subsequently, the opposing family house, Olugbode represented by David Salako and Kola Sangoniran, filed a motion with suit number HEJ/3/2020 seeking sack of Oba Johnson Ajiboye and nullification of his appointment letter by Governor Adeleke.

Justice Arojo granted the six interlocutory injunctions in the motion filed by the opposing family on March 25, 2024 over alleged illegality. 


Commenting on the development, the family through its lawyer, Barrister Fatimah Adeshina confirmed that the stool of Olola of Ola is vacant by the order granted by Osun State High Court. 

Olugbode in a petition dated April 10 2024 by one Kolawole Sangoniran addressed to Osun Police Command envisaged anarchy in Ola, stating “the deposed king is planning to confer chieftaincy title on some people at the Olola of Ola’s palace.”
