WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 2017 news 11 Olubadan says 21 new kings are wearing ‘carton crowns’ Olufemi Atoyebi, Ibadan T HE Olubadan of ibadan land, Oba Saliu Adetunji, has described the crowns given to the 21 new kings in ibadan as ones made of carton. This was contained in a statement signed by the Director, Media and Public Affairs to the monarch, Adeola Oloko, after the monarch received members of the council of Authentic ibadan Mogajis who paid him a solidarity visit at his palace on Tuesday.

The statement added, “The Olubadan described as untrue and unfounded the statement credited to a group of ibadan elders that Kabiyesi had consented to the controversial chieftaincy review embarked upon by the Oyo State Government resulting in the controversial crowning of 21 new kings. “Oba Adetunji stated that the elders should not mislead ibadan people into believing what he did not say, as what he said was that Governor Ajimobi, over whom they had come to plead, was his son and that he would not want a third party intervention over the matter.
