Family seeks Osun’s intervention in royal crisis
A ruling house in Iwo, Osun State, Gbaase Royal family, has urged Governor Rauf Aregbesola to allow justice to prevail in the selection of Oluwo.
A contestant from the ruling house, Prince Adewale Abdulrasheed Akanbi, made the appeal in a letter.
He asked the governor to study the history of the selection and installation process and ensure justice.
Akanbi said since the demise of the Oluwo, Oba Asiru Olatubosun Tadese, who died on February 19, 2013, after ruling for 21 years, there had been attempts to manipulate the selection process.
Akanbi said: “We are appealing to the government of Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola to save Iwo. Your government is of God because God was the one that vindicated you over your enemies. You have been a victim of injustice and fraud. So, please don’t allow that same injustice boat to sail during your tenure.
“Gbaase ruling house has been deprived for over 450 years and most especially, my own family, which is a direct descendant of Olayilumi, has been marginalised and denied the access to my family rights through fraudulent practices for over 650 years after the untimely death of Parin.
