The Olowo of Owo Kingdom and Paramount Ruler of Owo Land, His Imperial Majesty, Oba (Dr) Ajibade Gbadegesin Ogunoye III, has ordered the indefinite suspension of Chief Ololade Olanipekun, the Osere of Ehin-Ogbe Quarter, Owo Kingdom.
According to the letter of the suspension, signed by the Administrative Secretary to His Imperial Majesty, Chief Amos Aladeseye, on behalf of Olowo -In- Council, Chief Olanipekun is to face indefinite suspension for failure to accord complete traditional complimentary greetings to the Crown, refusal to follow the tradition as an ‘Edibo Ologho’, coupled with unruly behaviour during the Olowo-in-Council’s meeting.
As stated in the letter of suspension, Chief Osere was given opportunities to exculpate himself of blame concerning his misbehaviour through a query and subsequent panel of inquiry on the issue. Rather, he continued his justification for these odious actions,for which he even opened another trajectory by misrepresenting the cherished history and tradition of the kingdom.
The Council, having discovered that no element of remorse or apology was exhibited by Chief Osere for the rape of the valued tradition and culture of the kingdom was left with no choice than to approve his indefinite suspension as a titled Chief of Owo .
The suspension is with immediate effect, without reservation (s) in relation to the Osere Chieftaincy and as it concerns the Headship and Management of the Ehin-Ogbe Quarter.
It therefore becomes a taboo for the Osere to use the paraphernalia of office, including the beads (Akon).
As nature abhors vacuum, the Headship and Management of the Ehin Ogbe Quarter to devolve on Chief ADEBAYO ADEYEMI, the OSUNLA of Ehin-Ogbe, who is next in hierarchy, without hindrance and limit, as approved by the Council.
