A Man Identified as Lukman Olatunji has been reportedly shot after hoodlums set the palace of Akinrun of Ikirun, in Osun State on fire.

According to Reports, the incident occurred on Wednesday, November 23, 2022.

Tajudeen Gboleru, an elder brother of the deceased speaking on the development said his brother was shot dead when some security men were attempting to enter Akinrun palace.


The palace had been under lock since Oba Olalekan Akadiri was installed as Akinrun, with dissenting voices in the town calling for a reversal of his appointment and installation.

The late king was reportedly a descendant of the Gboleru Ruling House, one of the ruling houses fighting to fill the royal stool before it was passed on to the Obaara Ruling House via an Osun High Court ruling.

The Ikirun obaship tussle rocking the town was renewed after the Osun State Government appointed Prince Yinusa Olalekan Akadiri as the Akinrun and also after the new king allegedly led other persons to the town to gain access to the palace.


Akadiri’s appointment as the Akinrun by the Osun State Government did not have the support of the majority of the town’s people including chiefs and the head of kingmakers.

He was also denied access to the palace since the second day of his announcement as the new king which made the state government present the staff of office to him at the State Government Secretariat.
