Plot to ease out the crowned Prince of Fadu-Onimewon, Prince Olawale Edagbeja from his quest of agitating for the throne of ‘Elejigbo of Ejigbo’ has been uncovered.
VOA News correspondent gathered that stakeholders, under the auspices of ‘Ejigbo Indigenes Forum’, Lagos were on Tuesday invited to a ‘crucial meeting affecting the development and peace of Ejigbo’ at the office of the Executive Chairman, Ejigbo LCDA, along Isolo-Egbe road, Ejigbo Lagos.
But it was gathered from a reliable source who was also part of the meeting that the stakeholders were to dissuade crown Prince Olawale Edagbeja from further agitating for the position of Oba Elejigbo of Ejigbo.
When contacted as to if he was also part of the meeting and his reaction to the outcome of the meeting, Prince Olawale Edagbeja said that the conveners of the meeting did not contact him for the meeting and that he will not in any way be talked down from championing the course of his forebears and that his agitation is backed by law.
When VOA correspondent contacted a renowned international artist and one of the conveners of the said meeting, Prince Jelili Atiku on the outcome of the meeting, he said, ‘the outcome of the meeting will be made public as soon as it is conclusive’. He added that the meeting was for peace to reign in Ejigbo.
Meanwhile, all efforts to make the Chairman of Ejigbo LCDA, Hon. Monsuru Obe speak on the matter proved abortive as he did not reply the sms our correspondent sent to him nor return our call.
It will be recalled that The Nations Newspaper on Saturday reported that the Fadu-Onimewon of Ejigbo asked the Lagos state Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu to approve and gazette the throne of Elejigbo of Ejigbo and that there is no such position as Ojan of Ejigbo according to a Supreme court ruling.
The meeting might be unconnected to a sinister move to lay to rest the Obaship agitation of Fadu-Onimewon family of Ejigbo, VOA News gathered.
