By: Adedeji Suliat
Plot by Olowu of Owu, His Royal Majesty, Oba Dr. Olusanya Adegboyega Dosunmu to install Baale at Iyesi, Ota tomorrow has been uncovered.
VOA News reliably gathered that Olowu has concluded plans to install an Owu version of Baale in Iyesi, Ota. This is in continuation of his constant encroachment on Awori territory.
While speaking with VOA News correspondent, a source closed to the palace of Olota of Ota who spoke on the condition of anonymity said that Oba Dosunmu is planning to install Baale in Iyesi, a town which belongs to the Aworis. “We have uncovered plots by Olowu to install his own version of Baale within our territory, this move is not only anti-Awori, it is also capable of causing breach of public peace”.
He said the Nigerian Police Force should wade into the planned break down of Chieftaincy law and order by Oba Dosunmu as his territory do not go beyond Abeokuta North Local Government.
It will be recalled that Olowu of Owu and the late Olota of Ota were at loggerheads for several years until the demise of the later over installation of illegal Oba and Baale within the jurisdiction of the Olota. A plot which the new Olota of Ota, Oba Professor Adeyemi Obalanlege is making frantic effort to nip in the bud as he has embarked on peace moves among traditional rulers within and outside Ogun State.
