Just in: Court to decide rightful holder of the Oba of Lagos stool today

Justice Candide Johnson of the Lagos State high court Ikeja will now deliver his judgment by 2pm over the rightful holder of the Oba of Lagos stool.

Prince Adedoyin Adebiyi and challenging Oba Prince Rasheed Modile are challenging Oba Rilwan Akiolu as the rightful monarch.


The two plaintiffs are both from the Akinsemoyin ruling house, and claim that they were chosen by the family to contest the title, after the demise of the late Oba of Lagos, Oba Adeyinka Oyekan, the 2nd.

They say he has no rightful claim to the throne but Oba Akiolu says he was righfully chosen by the kingmakers, which led to his coronation on May 23, 2003.
