The Alale of Akungba- Akoko in Ondo state, Oba Sunday Adeyeye-Ajimoh has appealed to residents and indigenes of the community to maintain the peaceful atmosphere following a recent Obaship tussle in the town that is now before the Supreme Court.
The monarch also dismissed a rumour that the Ondo State government was planning to install another traditional ruler for the town.
Speaking with newsmen over a recent chieftaincy matter in his domain, Oba Ajimoh advised the residents to ignore speculations that could cause disaffection among them, noting that no competent court had nullified his installation by the state government since February last year.
The Alale insisted that Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu as a senior lawyer would not interfere with the chieftaincy matter that was still pending at the apex court or use his government’s apparatus to tamper with any issue that could disrupt harmonious atmosphere at the town that plays host to the Adekunle Ajasin University.
Oba Ajimoh also urged all Akungba sons and daughters particularly those at home to be law abiding as he remains the recognized monarch of the community.
The Court of Appeal had last week ruled that all parties in the protracted obaship crisis rocking Akungba- Akoko that involves Prince Oseni Adu and Ajimoh ruling family to return to the supreme court to argue their case.
