Trouble looms in Ikirun as Royal Families Fight over Next King
In Ikirun town, the Kingship tussle in the town has taken another dimension after the dethronement of Oba Olalekan Akadiri by the Osun State government late last year and the alleged bribery sandal trailing the Eesa of Ikirun, Abdulkareem Lawal, to install the Medical Director of Crystal Specialist Hospital Dr Lasunkanmi Adeyemi, as the new king.
The fierce battle, which has thrown the community into tension, is between the six kingmakers who want the alleged stolen mandate returned to Gboleru ruling house, who is meant to produce the king initially with the Eesa of Ikirun, Chief Lawal on one hand. Then the deposed Oba Akadiri and his brother, Dr Adeyemi, who want to take the crown through Lawal by every means on the other hand.
The Head of Gboleru Ruling House, Prince Olawale Olatunji Gboleru, spoke on the matter and insisted that it was the turn of their ruling house to produce the king stating that they have qualified candidates to fill the space on the stool.
