All is now set at CEOAfrica, a popular online media organisation in Ibadan, to host the deposed Iyaloja of Ibadan, Chief Labake Lawal in an interview on the medium’s online television programme, ‘Community Today’.
The interactive session which will be aired live on Thursday 18th May, 2017 will feature the ousted Iyaloja discussing about the controversies surrounding her removal from her official duties as the Iyaloja of Ibadan land.
Chief Labake will also be responding to questions about her decision to sue the Olubadan of Ibadan, Oba Saliu Adetunji and the new Iyaloja, Chief Iswat Ameringun to court to challenge her deposition.
The interactive session which will witness the presence of journalists from several online and mainstream news organisations, will hold at the premises of CEOAfrica Building located at 24, Kudeti Avenue, Onireke, Ibadan, Oyo State Capital.
Chief Labake Lawal was in March this year, stripped of her Chieftaincy title as the Iyaloja by the Olubadan of Ibadan. She was promptly replaced by Chief Iswat Ameringun – a decision which prompted Chief Lawal to file a suit at an Oyo State High Court to challenge the deposition.
Chief Lawal, who was appointed as the Iyaloja of Ibadan 11 years ago by the late Olubadan of Ibadan, Oba Yunusa Ogundipe, seeks a declaration in the court, that appointment and installation of the third defendant as Iyaloja of Ibadan land by the first and second defendants on March 20 was illegal.
Chief Lawal prays the court to declare her opponent’s appointment null and void and of no legal effect, stating that the appointment and installation was not only wrong, but also violated her rights to natural justice.
This issue and many more will be discussed at the interactive session slated for tomorrow.
