Sacked monarch ap­peals judg­ment

Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Doyin Ade­busuyi, Ado Ek­iti

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.
