Afolabi Olaoye Becomes Soun Of Ogbomoso Against Court Order



Kingmakers in the early hours of Friday crowned Prince Afolabi Ghandi Olaoye as the new Soun of Ogbomoso against court order.

Recall that an Oyo State High Court had ordered the state governor  and others not to present the instrument of office to him.

Olaoye’s installation was performed at Abata in Ogbomosjo by the kingmakers, led by the Areago of Ogbomoso, High Chief Sobalaje Otolorin.

While performing the installation, the kingmakers, claimed not to receive any court injunction restraining them from installing Olaoye as Soun of Ogbomoso.

Also, Justice K.A Adedokun on Thursday gave an order restraining Olaoye from parading, representing or presenting himself as the candidate for any ceremony for the issuance of a certificate of installation or wearing any regalia resembling that of the occupant of the stool of Soun of Ogbomoso Chieftaincy pending the hearing and final determination of the mandatory injunction already filed before the court.
