Residents of Isolo community in Akure appeared to be heading in different directions on their choice of monarch while members of aggrieved camp are currently beating the drum of war.

The community which was once a serene settlement is gradually becoming a battle field, festered through the imposition of the present monarch by the Deji of Akure, Oba Aladetoyinbo Aladelusi.

The Deji, according to a source, had rejected the choice of the kingmakers who enthroned Idowu Amos and single-handedly installed his preferred candidate, Prince Edward Adewole.

In a petition written to the state governor, the kingmakers argued that the installation of Prince Adewole as the new Osolo of Isolo by the Deji of Akureland contradicted the state government circular with reference number CD/C43/5 vol.XXII/ 349.

Speaking on behalf of the community, High Chief Ebenezer Ogunjemilusi urged the state government to call Oba Aladelusi to order and in particular, make him rescind the illegal appointment in the interest of peace.

"We the Isolo kingmakers have given the Deji an ultimatum to rescind his decision or face the traditional consequence of his action.

"That is why we have petitioned the state government. Once we hear from the government, we will embark on our next line action."

A source in the palace of Isolo however posited that the kingmakers are only fighting for their own interest.

"The Deji has confirmed the appointment of Prince Adewole and there is nothing anyone can do about it." He said.

It was alleged that Oba Aladelusi had nullified the appointment of Amos Idowu and installed Prince Adewole because of personal interest.

Amos Idowu was said to have travelled abroad to bring his family immediately after the completion of the traditional rites in preparation for the formal coronation but was shocked to see that the Deji of Akure had installed Adewole as Osolo of Isolo.

While Adewole sits on the disputed throne, Amos is fighting from the US where he is based and the community has divided against itself on the choice of the monarch.
