Sacked monarch appeals judgment
The Owa of Odo Ayedun in Ikole Local Government Area of Ekiti State, Oba Solomon Ilesanmi Ajibade, who was sacked by a state high court last week, has filed a stay of execution and appeal against the judgment.
A claimant to the throne, Adekunle Adeniyi, had challenged the monarch’s appointment as the Owa and his prayers were granted by the court which sat in Ikole Ekiti.
But Oba Ajibade, in a press statement yesterday, said since he had filed a stay of execution at the Ado Ekiti Division of the Court of Appeal, he remained the Owa, saying, “There is nothing to celebrate by the petitioner in the judgment given by the lower court.”
He urged the people of Odo Ayedun to remain calm as the peaceful coexistence of the community remained paramount to him.
