A royal family in Alade-Idanre, Idanre Local Government Area of Ondo State, Akinboro Royal family has appealed to Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu to intervene and stop the plot to impose anybody who is not from the recognized ruling house on the community, as king to avoid crisis
However, Ondo State Government has denied the plot of imposing ‘stranger’ as king in the ancient town, but claimed that it followed due process.
The family vowed that the imposition of stranger to the stool of Aladeokun would not be tolerated under whatever guise.
The stool of the Aladeokun of Alade-Idanre became vacant in 2020 after the death of Oba Olusegun Akinbola.
Reacting, Ondo State Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Takuro Amidu, denied plot to impose stranger on Alade-Idanre.
Amidu said the state government based its decisions on available laws, adding that the present administration does not impose an Oba on any community.
Addressing journalists, Princess Adenine Olowolabi, said the processes to install a new king have commenced, but they were shocked to receive information that government officials wrote to the kingmakers that the Akinnadeju family should nominate a candidate to be the next king.
Princess Adenike said the extant Aladeokun of Alade-Idanre registered Chieftaincy Declaration only recognised rotation of the Obaship between the Akinbola and Akinboro ruling house.
She said the family had already filed a suit filed at the Ondo State High Court seeking an order of perpetual injunction restraining Ondo State Government, kingmaker from nominating, presenting or appointing any member of Akinnadeju family from filling the vacant stool of Aladeokun Alade Idanre.
