Ijebu-Igbo; one of the big towns in Ogun state got a new king after 28 years of interregnum occasioned by legal battle and fierce contest over the stool.



The interregnum was officially laid aside yesterday as Governor Dapo Abiodun installed the new Orimolusi of Ijebu Igbo, Oba Lawrence Adebajo.

Ijebu-Igbo, the headquarters of Ijebu North LG, is one of the major towns in Ogun State, and the home town of late eminent politician and Afenifere Chieftain, Chief Abraham Adesanya, late Senator Buruji Kasamu, Senator Adegbenga Kaka, a former Deputy Governor of the state, among others.

The last Orimolusi, Oba Sani Adetayo joined his ancestors in May 1994. Ever since then, the seat has been without an occupant due to a dispute over who would succeed him.

The protracted crisis was among nine contestants from the same Ojuronmi Ruling House, whose turn it is to produce the next king.

Speaking at the installation ceremony held at Abusi Edumare in Ijebu Igbo, the governor promised that his government would continue to prioritise the welfare and wellbeing of traditional rulers.
