A Magistrate Court sitting in Ikirun, Ifelodun Local Government Area of Osun State has granted LEAVE to an applicant seeking the binding over and restraint of Prince Yinusa Akadiri from being installed, coronated and presented with staff of office as the new Akirun of Ikirun in order not to cause further breakdown of peace and order in Ikirun and environs, ordering the applicant to file and serve on the respondents, within 14 days, the application to show cause why the order of binding over for the maintenance of peace in Ikirun should not be granted.



On the face of the application, the applicant deposed to the fact that taking any further step regarding Akinrun Chieftaincy and opening the palace will imperil the peace of Ikirun until all litigations in court regarding Akinrun Chieftaincy is laid to rest.



Prince Abass Adeyemi has also approached the Osun State High court to restrain the Osun State Government, Attorney-General of Osun State, Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftancy Affairs, Ifelodun Local Government and the Kingmakers from furthering the process of installation, coronation and presentation of staff of office to the purportedly appointed new Akinrun.

Granting the leave, Chief Magistrate Ijiyode allowed the application thereby paving way for the applicant to apply that the respondents, i.e, the Kingmakers and Prince Yinusa Akadiri, be caused to enter into a bond to show cause why they should not be made to enter into recognizance in order not to cause further breakdown of peace, law and order in Ikirun and its environs.

In the same vein, another suit had been filled at the Osun State High Court seeking for an injunction restraining the State Government and kingmakers from proceeding on the installation, coronation and presentation of staff of office to the purported new Akirun.

The injunction was hinged on the fact that there was an existing pending case in the appellate court which is the main issue, unfortunately, the State Government went ahead to appoint Prince Yinusa Akadiri as the new Akirun and this has caused a lot of crisis in the town.

Meanwhile, since the day the new Akirun was announced, it has triggered a lot of crisis within the town, as the palace has been under lock and key. This has made it impossible for the new monarch to access the palace as the processes of his purported nomination, selection and appointment are being challenged in court.

Recall, recently, the Osun State Government announced the appointment of Prince Yinusa Olalekan Akadiri of Oba-Ara Ruling House as the new Akinrun of Ikirun, in Ifelodun Local Government Area of the State. This has generated a lot of crisis in the town.

The Akinrun stool became vacant on February 8, 2021, following the demise of Oba Rauf Adedeji who mounted the royal stool in 1991. However, since the purported appointment of the new Akinrun, the process of installation, coronation and presentation of staff of office to Akadiri has been on hold, making his appointment to be yet inconclusive.
