Court Halts Installation, Presentation Of Staff Of Office To New Akirun

A magistrate court sitting in Ikirun, Ifelodun local government area of Osun State has granted a leave restraining Prince Yinusa Akadiri from being coronated as Akirun.

Prince Abass Adeyemi has approached the court to restrain the Osun State Government, Ministry of Local Government and Chieftancy Affairs and the Kingmakers from presenting Staff of Office to the newly appointed monarch.

Granting the leave, Magistrate Ibiyode said the respondent, i.e, the Kingmakers and Prince Yinusa Akadiri, to show cause why they should not be made to enter into recognizance in order not to cause further breakdown of law and order in Ikirun and its environs.

In the same vein, another suit had been filled at the Osun State High Court seeking for an injunction restraining the State Government and kingmakers from proceeding on the installation, coronation and presentation of staff of office to the newly elected Akirun.

The injunction was hinged on the fact that there was an existing pending case in court which is the main issue. Unfortunately, the State Government went ahead to appoint Prince Yinusa Akadiri as the new Akirun and this has caused a lot of crisis in the town.

Meanwhile, since the day the new Akirun was announced, it has triggered a lot of crisis within the town, as the palace has been under lock and key. This has made it impossible for the new monarch to access the palace.

Recall, recently, the Osun State Government announced the appointment of Prince Yinusa Olalekan Akadiri of Oba-Ara Ruling House as the new Akinrun of Ikirun, in Ifelodun Local Government Area of the State. This has generated a lot of crisis in the town.

The Akinrun stool became vacant on February 8, 2021, following the demise of Oba Rauf Adedeji who mounted the royal stool in 1991.
