Osun Monarch Debunks Purported Planned Dethronement
The monarch of the home town of Osun State governor-elect Gboyega Oyetola has debunked his purported planned dethronement.
Aragbiji of Iragbiji, Oba Abdurasheed Ayotunde Olabomi says he has the support of the people.
The Oba was in reacting to the comment by one ‘Prince Tunde Olawale’ over claims that the monarch was instigating religious crisis and flaunting the royal stool tradition.
The monarch made his position known during a briefing with journalists in his palace in Iragbiji, Boripe Local Government area of Osun.
It would be recalled that Olawale, popular called Dansaki was reported to have called on stakeholders in the state to rise up and forestall the imminent crisis in the town.
In a letter by his lawyer, Abioye Kunle Charles, Olawale said the Aragbiji needs to be cautioned before he causes religious crisis in the town.
Olawale while addressing journalists explained that the monarch has gone against the dictate of culture by vacating the palace for his personal residence and deserved to be dethroned.
But Oba Olabomi while reacting explained that, “Iragbiji remains very peaceful, convivial , and happy community without an iota of perceived crisis. Relationship between various groups , interest and segments of the community have been most cordial more so with the election of our son, Isiaka Oyetola as the Governor of Osun.”
“Neither Tunde Olawale nor his counsel have locus to speak for either the community, the Muslim nor traditionalists who they profess to be speaking for.
