The newly elected Akarigbo is a barrister and a chartered accountant. He is from the Torungbuwa ruling house.

He was elected on Thursday through an open ballot held among the seven kingmakers at the Akarigbo’s palace, Sagamu.

Ajayi polled five votes as against two ballots won by Prof. Babatunde Ogunmola.  Nineteen princes were said to have contested for the exalted position. But the remaining 17 nominees had no vote.

The election was supervised by the Secretary to the Sagamu Local Government, Otunba Adewale Fakoya, who read the names of the 19 nominees to the kingmakers, requesting them to cast their votes for the candidate of their choice.
