Idowu Adediwura, the second-in-command to the Ooni of Ife, has been sacked by a high court in Osogbo presided over by Justice Foluke Awolalu.
The verdict, delivered on Wednesday, December 11, came after Abayomi Elugbuji filed a suit that kicked against Adediwura’s rise to the office, The Cable reports.
In the suit, Elugbuji’s lawyer, Babafemi Akande, said that the installation of Adediwura contravened the provisions of Ife chieftaincy declaration of 1957.

Reacting to the ruling, Akande said: “The law is very clear, nobody is above the law and no one is below it. So, the judge gave the judgment in accordance with the dictates of the law.”
