Ibadan Authentic Mogajis (family heads) have told the city’s 21 new obas to withdraw their 21-day dethronement threat against the Olubadan, Oba Saliu Adetunji.

They issued a seven-day ultimatum against the new obas to withdraw their threat against the Imperial Majesty or be sanctioned for their disloyalty to the frontline monarch.

The new obas had issued a 21-day ultimatum to Oba Adetunji to abide by the Olubadan Chieftaincy Declaration law review or face dethronement.

The mogajis advised the new obas to immediately withdraw their ultimatum or face the wrath of Ibadan sons and daughters.


 
According to them, the new obas risk losing their crowns should they recommend the Olubadan for removal because of what they called “phantom charges” against His Imperial Majesty.

The mogajis, after their meeting at the Oja’ba palace, which was reportedly attended by Alhaji Abass Oloko (Mogaji Oloko), Chief Abduljelyl Karheem (Mogaji Adanla), Alhaji Moshud Gbolagade (Mogaji Akere), Alhaji Waheed Kosoko (Mogaji Onilabu), Alhaji Ademola Oladosu (Mogaji Olasomi) and Chief Wale Oladoja (Mogaji Akinsola), said they would not allow the city to disintegrate.

A statement yesterday in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, by their spokesman Wale Oladoja, said: “We can’t continue to fold our arms and watch while some people rain abuses and insults on our revered kabiyesi. It is a big slap on the real Ibadan sons and daughters and we have decided to appeal to the eight high chiefs to withdraw their statement within the next seven days or face the consequences of their disloyalty to the Olubadan, who, by law and tradition of the city, remains the paramount ruler of the land.

“These eight high chiefs are members of the Olubadan-in-Council and they should stop parading themselves as constitutional obas in Ibadan; failure to do so may lead to anarchy. We know quite alright that the government of President Muhammadu Buhari will not tolerate anything that will jeopardise the security of any part of the country and the governor, as the Chief Security Officer of the state, should caution all these-so-called vassal obas. They should allow court to decide the cases on merit and stop cutting corners.
