Appeal Court Strikes Out Approval Of 48 Obas In Oyo

The court of appeal in Ibadan struck out a motion filed by Sen. Rashidi Ladoja, challenging the powers of Gov. Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo state to gazette and approve “ beaded crowns and coronets” to 48 Obas across the state.

Ajimobi appealed the Jan. 20, 2018 decision of justice Olajumoke Aiki of the Oyo state high court, which set aside recommendation of a committee of inquiry on the review of the 1957 Ibadan Chieftaincy declaration, which recommended crowning of 21 new Obas in Ibadan land.

The three-man panel of judges headed by justice Nonyerem Okoronkwo, held that the thrust of the relief sought was invoking the court to set aside the gazette which approved the crowing of the Obas.

The court held that the gazette which the motion seeks the court to set aside was not the subject matter at the lower court.
