Court dethrones Ondo monarch after a 29-year legal tussle

Oba Micheal Adetunji Oluwole, the traditional ruler of Ute in the Ose local government area of Ondo state has been dethroned by a state High Court sitting in Owo, Owo local government area of the state after a legal tussle that lasted for 29 years. 

 

Olule Omolaja Ruling House had challenged the retired Army Major’s right to ascend the throne.

 

Justice Ademola Enikuomehin who nullified the selection process that brought Oba Oluwole to the throne and ordered a fresh selection process into the stool, ordered Oluwole to stop parading himself as the traditional ruler of the town. The fresh selection process will be from the Olule Omoloja ruling house lineage.

 

According to Justice Enikuomehin, the dethroned monarch had no right to the throne as he’s not a member of the ruling house designated to fill the vacant throne of the town.
