Kingmakers ignore court order, install Afolabi Olaoye as Soun of Ogbomoso

Prince Afolabi Ghandi Olaoye has been installed as the new Soun of Ogbomoso.

He was installed in the early hours of Friday.

The installation of Olaoye is coming a few hours after an Oyo State High Court ordered the state governor and others not to present the instrument of office to him.

Our correspondent reports that the court, under the leadership of Justice K.A Adedokun on Thursday, also 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.

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

The kingmakers, while performing the installation, maintained that they are yet to receive any court injunction restraining them from installing Olaoye as Soun of Ogbomoso.
