….Community Rejects Taiwo Adegboye As Their New Monarch
There was palapable tension in the ancient town of Awo in Egbedore Local Government area of Osun State, over illegal imposition of immediate past Local Government legislative leader, Taiwo Adegboye as new Alawo of Awo on the Mild-Night of September 14, 2021 by the State Government.
It would be recalled that Taiwo Abdulrasaq Adegboye and one Hamzat Abidoye Gboyelade with their cohorts were currently under criminal investigation of the authorities of the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) and Department of State Security (DSS) over alleged forgery and perjury in respect of Alawo stool.
It was alleged that at every stage of Adegboye’s illegal and purported selection process documents, all the documents were forged in favour of Taiwo Adegboye with intent to defraud the State government which lead to dubious and illegal crowning of Taiwo as new Alawo in the midnight of penultimate Tuesday.
The community claimed that it was an abomination to make twins and stranger as their monarch in the ancient town because such children were referred to as idols(Orisa) and also claimed that the matters in respect of the stool were still pending before the State High Court and Appellate Court for determination before the State government disobeyed the orders of the Courts by trying to impose a stranger on the community.
They also frowned at the action of the State government over illegal approval of Taiwo Adegboye as new Alawo of the ancient town by rejecting the action of the State government in its entirety, the action which they believed it would not stand the test of the time, they were asking rhetorically that how they would crown legal monarch in the middle of the night if they were truly genuine?
They stressed that the action of the State government has called for investigation, adding that Oyetola led administration in the State has something to hide on the issue.
According to the community:”We are suprissed to hear in the morning of Tuesday 14th of September,2021, when the people of the community were preparing for their places of work, to hear that they have crown the monarch in the middle of the night. We are totally rejected the illegal action of the State government on the subject matter”.
They alleged the two members of Oyetola’s cabinet were brain behind the absurdity in the ancient town, mentioning the names of Secretary to the State Government, Prince Wole Oyebamiji (08033784345) and Special Adviser on Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs to Governor Gboyega Oyetola, Envangelist Rasaq Adeosun(0803 563 3014).
They further stressed that it has been the usual action of Oyebamiji and Adeosun to impose a monarch on any community through evil spirit, referring to the home town(Iwoye) of Oyebamiji monarch who died within Seven(7)Years on the throne,thereby making the throne to be vacant since three years ago but Oyebamiji has been planning to impose his child on the throne of Oluwoye of Iwoye.
Meanwhile, Taiwo Adegboye who is planning to have access to the newly acclaimed built Palace by immediate past Alawo, Oba Musa Olatunbosun Adebayo, Akinsilo (II), according to his Son of immediate past Alawo on Sunday before the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) Office at Awo Divissional Police Headquarter’s was proved abortive by the rejection of the community leaders and claimed that the house built by late monarch was his private residence occupying by his immediate family members now.
Sought for the intervention of the Divisional Police Officer (DPO-0 8067060188) in charge of Egbedore Local Government in Awo, where he invited the children of the late monarch led by Prince Tajudeen Adebayo (07038750618) and Prince Mutiu Adebayo(08036584465) and they affirmed the position of the community leaders before the Police Chief by saying that their mothers occupied the private residence of thier husband and the acclaimed new Alawo should go and meet the family of Alawo that occupied the throne before their father, to show him (Taiwo) the palace used then.
But DPO then advised the acclaimed delegates from the new monarch to approach the Court of Law with documents that shown the private residence of the immediate past monarch as community palace if they truly believed,the place is an ancient town palace.
Until this morning,Tuesday 21st September, 2021, while the newly acclaimed monarch, Oba Taiwo Adegboye employed the service of the men of the Mobile Police Force(MPF) to forcefully broken into private residence by breaking all the doors and entrances of the said building belonging to immediate past late Oba Musa Olatunbosun Adebayo, without Court order.
It was learnt that the private residence was built on the land of elder brother to late Oba Adebayo and immediate past Imam of the ancient town, late Imam Tijani Adebayo.
