Adeleke Moves To Vacate Court Order On Iree Oba’s Installation



Senator Nurudeen Ademola Jackson Adeleke: What's In A Name By Olawale Aide

The Osun State governor, Ademola Adeleke on Saturday directed the Ministry of Justice to do the needful in a bid to quash the court order restraining him from presenting instruments of office to Oba Muritala Oyelakin as Aree of Iree.

It would be recalled that Oba Ademola Ponnle who was appointed under the administration of Adegboyega Oyetola and Oba Muritala Oyelakin appointed by Adeleke had been on loggerheads over who is the authentic monarch for the community.

Meanwhile, a court order granted by Justice Michael Awe of Osun State High Court, Ikirun restrained Adeleke and four traditional chiefs from presenting instruments of office to Oba Oyelakin at a ceremony that had been fixed for May 4th 2024.

Reacting to the development, Osun State Government through the Commissioner for Information and Public Enlightenment, Kolapo Alimi said Adeleke sued for peace as he will respect rule of law on the matter.

He noted ”Osun State Government has postponed until further notice the formal presentation of staff of office and instrument of appointment to Oba Muritala Oyelakin, the newly appointed Aree of Iree.”

“Following an Osun State High Court’s Ex-Parte ruling Presided over by Hon Justice M. O Awe against the presentation of Staff of Office to His Royal Majesty Oba Muritala Oyelakin as the Aree of Iree, the government wishes to implore the monarch and the good people of Iree to remain calm and be law-abiding.

“The order having been therefore granted, Osun State Government under the leadership of H. E, Senator Ademola Adeleke has accordingly directed the Osun State Ministry of Justice to do the needful with a view to ensuring that the interim order is discharged forthwith.”
