Chieftaincy title: Ex-gov, Ladoja drags Makinde, Olubadan, others to court

Rasidi Ladoja, a former governor of Oyo State, has sued both Governor Seyi Makinde and Oba Lekan Balogun, the Olubadan of Ibadan land.

The former governor also dragged Ibadan High Chiefs who were recently elevated as Kings to court.

Recall that the state House of Assembly recently amended the Chiefs Law in the state.

On Friday, the Olubadan elevated ten (10) High Chiefs in the ancient city to Obas, although Ladoja distanced himself from the promotion.

Ladoja had earlier explained that he was not interested in any other crowns but the Olubadan crown.

Ladoja’s filed the suit at the Oyo State High Court.

Details of the suit are contained in court papers obtained by DAILY POST on Wednesday.
