Thecoronation of the Olubadan-designate, Saliu Adetunji, as the 41st Olubadan of Ibadanland, would go on as planned on Friday, the Olubadan-in-Council said on Tuesday. The announcement came after the head of Seriki line in Ibadan, Chief Adebayo Oyediji, said on Monday that he had approached the Oyo State High Court in Ibadan, seeking an order to charge Adetunji for contempt of court and to commit him to prison if installed as the next Olubadan. Addressing journalists in Ibadan ahead of the coronation ceremony, the Otun Olubadan, High Chief Lekan Balogun, said the Olubadan-in-Council had decided to fill the vacuum left behind after the death of Oba Samuel Odugade.

Balogun added that only the Balogun and Otun lines were recognised in the Olubadan succession plan. On Friday, the Oyo State Governor, Abiola Ajimobi, will become the first governor to present a staff of office to two Olubadan when he installs Adetunji as the next Ibadan monarch at the Mapo Hall arcade.
