Olubadan-of-Ibadan-Oba-Saliu-AdetunjiThe Olubadan of Ibadan, Oba Saliu Akanmu Adetunji, has denied installing any new leader for the Igbo community in Ibadanland.
There were reports that the Olubadan had last Friday endorsed Chief Alloy Obi as the leader of Igbo community in Ibadan and threatened to order for the arrest of anyone who parades himself as Igbo leader except Chief Obi that received his blessings.
The purported endorsement of Chief Obi as leader of the Igbo community in Ibadan had pitched the community under the umbrella of Igbo Community Development Association (ICDA) on a collision path with monarch.
The ICDA vowed to submit to the rule of law by recognizing the judgment of the Oyo state High Court on February 18, 2014 which proclaimed Chief Alex Anozie as the only Igbo leader in Ibadan and Oyo state.
Clarifying his position on Wednesday at his Popoyemoja, Ibadan palace, Oba Adetunj noted that as a responsible monarch, he respects the rule of law and is bound by court ruling as a law-abiding Nigerian.
According to him, there was never a time he conferred the chieftaincy title of Eze Ndigbo or recognised anybody as the leader of Igbo in Ibadanland.
The Olubadan, therefore, urged all residents and citizens of Ibadan to remain law-abiding.
The Popoyemoja Descendants Union, PDU, led by Alhaji Abass Asanpa, also called on the people to cooperate with the monarch.
The union presented the Olubadan with a painting of his portrait.
