Ladoja withdraws case against Olubadan in Council 


The Otun Olubadan of Ibadanland, High Chief Rashidi Ladoja, on Tuesday withdrew the suit he filed against members of Olubadan-In-Council and Gov. Seyi Makinde on the beaded wearing crown in July, 2023.

One of the aides to High Chief Ladoja, Alhaji Adeola Oloko, said the counsel to High Chief Ladoja would approach the court Wednesday for enrollment order.

He added that after the enrollment order, the defendants in the suit will be served with the case withdrawal notice.

“Baba has withdrawn the case filed against the Olubadan-in-Council from the Court. This will facilitate the enthronement of Oba Owolabi Olakulehin as the 43rd Olubadan of Ibadanland.

“Ladoja has lived up to his promise to the people of Ibadanland to withdraw the case from the court.

“There is no longer any delay from his end. What is next now is for Gov Makinde to approve the nomination of Oba Olakulehin as the next Olubadan.”

Recall that High Chief Ladoja in July last year instituted the suit against Gov Makinde over the beaded wearing crown in July, 2023, after the approval of the elevation of the Ibadan High Chiefs to Obas following Olubadan’s recommendation.
