A monarch in Oyo State, the Aseyin of Iseyin has announced the suspension of two of his chiefs.
The Aseyin, Oba Abd-Ganiy Adekunle Salau, suspended the Basorun of Iseyin, Chief Raheem Adelodun.
DAILY POST gathered that Adelodun was suspended over allegations ranging from gross insubordination, flagrant disrespect to the stool and authority of the Aseyin of Iseyin.
The monarch also announced the removal of Mr Sulaimon Olanrewaju, who was the Akiisi of Iseyinland.
Our correspondent gathered that Olanrewaju was suspended over alleged disobedient and collusion with the Basorun to illegally sell some parcel of land in the community.
The monarch in a statement signed and made available to journalists on Thursday in Ibadan, the state capital, said that Adelodun was alleged to have, alongside the former Akiisi, engaged in acts that could bring disrepute to the authority of the monarch and his own family.
“Consequent upon your incessant recalcitrant Insubordination and flagrant disrespect and disobedience to the authority of the Aseyin of Iseyin, Oba (Dr) Abd-Ganiy Adekunle Salau, you are found culpable, this is evident in your convocation of clandestine meetings of the Chiefs with a view to inciting them against the authority of the Aseyin of Iseyin.
“This action is tantamount to treason and mutiny, apart from the above, you have remained recalcitrant in hurling insults and disrespectful words against the Aseyin in spite of several warnings, this you still repeated on the 26th of June 2020 in the presence of His Majesty’s subjects.
“This is against the custom and tradition of Iseyin and it is capable of bringing the office and personality of the Aseyin into disrepute, in view of the foregoing, you are hereby suspended forthwith indefinitely as the Basorun of Iseyin.
“Till the suspension lasts, you are not to parade yourself in any form as the Basorun of Iseyinland and you should relinquish all duties and privileges that accrue to the office of Basorun,” he said.
