Court Strikes Out Olubadan's Territorial Suit Against Osun



The Federal High Court  in Ibadan presided over by Justice Ayo Emmanuel has struck out the suit filed by the Olubadan of Ibadan, Oba Saliu Akanmu Olasupo and others against the Osun State Government  and Iwo Local Government.



The Olubadan had approached the Court claiming that the paramount ruler of Ibadanland has native control over the Ogboru town which is presently under the control of Iwo Local Government  in Osun State.



He also claimed that Lagelu  Local Government  Area in Oyo State has territorial jurisdiction over Ogburo and its environs that fall on the same side of Odo Oba river in Osun State.


To this end, Jide Obisakin (Esq), Director of Litigation and Advisory Services, Osun State Ministry  of Justice, representing Osun State Government  and others argued that the the Federal High Court has no jurisdiction to entertain the suit as the  matter is presently before the National Boundary Commission for adjudication.


Justice Emmanuel, in his ruling, therefore declined to entertain the suit filed by the Olubadan of Ibadan and thereby struck out the suit.
