I Didn’t invade Isinkan Communities – Deji

The Deji of Akure, Oba Aladelusi Aladetoyinbo has allegedly invaded communities that belong to Isinkan kingdom in Akure south local government areas of Ondo State laying claim to them.

The Akure Monarch who on Tuesday came in a motorcade to the communities from Adebowale junction on Ondo road to Itanoniyan, Oke-Ilero, Omu, Araromi Aladodo among others met with those he described as his Olus in the area.

Oba Aladetoyinbo was said to have told the Olus that the communities belong to Akure and direct them to disregard whatever the Iralepo is doing and be ready to defend their communities.

The alleged invasion raised tension in the area as youths of Isinkan had mobilized to resist the the Deji from entering the communities.

It took the intervention of the Iralepo of Isinkan, Oba Oluwagbemiga Ajimokunola Olofin-Adimula (Arulewolasi III) to calm nerves of the restive youths.

Speaking to Journalists, Oba Olofin-Adimula said when he got the information that Deji would be coming to the communities, he had to send to the leaders and youths of the communities not to engage in any fight with anyone over the provocative action.

He said the communities the Deji invaded are under the jurisdiction of Isinkan kingdom, noting that what the Akure Monarch did was tantamount to invitation to anarchy.

“The Deji has taken Ondo State government and our kingdom to the court on this matter. As a matter of fact we have cases in the court of appeal and Akure high court as Instituted by him.”

“Has there been any judgement in his favour to have warranted his invasion?”

“The Deji is only looking for trouble and want to disrupt the peace in the state capital.”

“Isinkan people are not Akures. Isinkan land is not part of Akure land from time immemorial”

Oba Iralepo said he has a judgement from the state high court stating the boundaries between Isinkan and her neighbours.

“The normal thing the Deji should have done would have been to wait for the outcome of the courts before this show of shame. Is he afraid of anything?”

“The fourteen (14) so called Olus he had gone to see were installed by the Deji illegally on our land, we are only waiting for the determination of the court cases to show them the door.”

“The illegally proclaimed Olus on lsinkan land include among others; the Olu of Omu lsinkan, who admitted in a court document that his grand father “Familokun” was installed as Olomu lsinkan by lralepo Aladetoyinbo of isinkan who reigned between 1932 and 1976, and his biological father “Adewole” Olu Omu lsinkan was installed by Oba Iralepo, Joseph Olu Ojo who reigned between 1978 and 2021 and the same lralepo installed him “ldowu” as the Olu Omu lsinkan, the position he held for nine (9) years before the Deji of Akure coerced him to regularize the same chieftaincy at his palace. Same as the one called Olu lta Oniyan “Mr Muyiwa ” that the Ministry of local government and Chieftaincy affairs had written a warning letter to since 2010 not to parade himself as Olu on Isinkan land.”

“lralepo is the prescribed authority over lsinkan land and all these places belong to the domain of lsinkan.

See the document of Oba Ademuagun Adesida in 1971 where the Oba and the Deji in council had stated clearly the demarcation of lralepo of lsinkan land.” He said

“I again appeal to the state Governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Odunayo Akeredolu SAN to prevail on this Deji so that he does not set the State capital on fire.”

However the Deji of Akure, Oba Aladetoyinbo Aladelusi has denied any invasion saying the allegation was a figment of the imagination of the accusers.

His chief Press Secretary, Michael Adeyeye said the Deji in company of some people visited Olus in some communities and they conducted themselves peacefully throughout their stay in the communities.

“He said, there is no invasion anywhere, let them provide evidence of what was destroyed, because we were there peacefully and everything went on peacefully and we are back home now.”
