Alake of Egbaland, Oba Michael Adedotun Gbadebo has urged the Olota of Ota, Oba Abdulkabir Adeyemi Obalanlege to desist from taking actions that would disturb the peace of the state.

There has been dispute between the duo over who reigns over the Aworis and which of them has the legal authority to install Kings and Chiefs in certain towns. The towns in dispute include Sango, Atan, Ijoko, Abule-Ore, Adekoyeni and also the Gbalefa peninsula.

Chiefs from Awori land, backed by the Olota recently addressed a press conference during which they alleged among other things, through their spokesperson, Chief Olanrewaju Bashorun that the Alake had illegally installed Kings and Chiefs in towns where the Olota of Ota reigns. But Oba Gbadebo at a press conference in his Ake, Abeokuta palace yesterday refuted this, saying, “The outcome of this case has been settled for all time and beyond all reasonable doubt, the legal authority of the Alake of Egbaland to administer traditional oversight in all the areas Chief Bashorun mentioned in his superfluity.”

The Alake insisted that the allegation by the Aworis that he had installed imposed or induced kings, baales or chiefs was totally false.

He insisted that the Awori’s misinformed the public when they said the towns he installed Kings and Chiefs do not fall within his domain, regretting that Oba Obalanlege and his chiefs had resorted to self-help.
