Court Orders Elevated Ibadan Baales, Mogajis to Return to former Positions

Ibadan baales

Court has ordered the Ibadan Baales, Mogajis, who were elevated during Late Sen. Abiola Ajimobi’s tenure to return to their original positions before the setting up of the Justice Akintunde Boade Commission of inquiry.

The Chief Judge of Oyo State, Justice Munta Abimbola, while delivering the judgement in a case instituted by 34 coronet-wearing Baales and Mogajis, who were elevated alongside some High Chiefs by the Late Governor Abiola Ajimobi in 2017 to contest the validity of the consent judgment entered by parties today (Thursday), issued an order of perpetual injunction, restraining them from the status of elevation or wearing crowns or coronets.

Justice Abimbola, in his judgment, said he finds no merit in their application before the court, dismissed it in its entirety, and answered all their questions in the negative.

He further held that all government action must be in compliance with the law of the land.

The claimants in the suit filed against the state governor and four others, had argued that the consent judgement which nullified the review that elevated them was not valid, as they were not part of those who made the agreements that formed the consent judgment.
