Just In: Court Declines To Stop Selection Process Of New Olufon



NCDP Meeting: Adeleke calls for FG, states' Collaboration To Overcome Current Economic Hardship

The Osun State High Court sitting in Osogbo has declined an oral prayer from Odunolu Oluronbi and Oluyeyin royal families in Ifon-Orolu, Orolu Local Government.

The Oluyeyin royal family and some faction of Odunolu royal family had approached the court to seek for an injunction to restrain the Osun State government from continuing the process of installation of the new Olufon of Ifon.

Justice Ayo Oyebiyi while declining the order in the early hours of Tuesday 26th September 2023, recalled the granting of several orders on the same subject matter while noting the absence of representatives of other interested parties in the matter in court as a major reason for declining the order.

It would be recalled that the process to fill the vacant OLUFON stool was kickstarted early this month after several months of consultation by the relevant stakeholders.

The court later adjourned to October 12th, 2023 for further hearing on the matter.
