An Ekiti State High Court sitting in Ikole Ekiti, has nullified the selection of Oba Ilesanmi Ajibade as the Owa of Odo Ayedun Ekiti.
The court declared the claimant, Prince Adekunle Adeniyi, as the validly selected candidate having participated in the selection process conducted by six kingmakers in the town.
Adeniyi in the suit no: HCL/12/09 filed on July 10, 2013 approached the court seeking the nullification of the selection of Oba Ajibade, 15th respondent and an order directing the governor to approve the nomination of the claimant.
He also sought a declaration that the appointment of the warrant chiefs (11th to 14th defendants) was illegal. And all were granted on to him
