Lagos High Court sitting at Ikeja will today deliver judgment on the matter between the Oba of Lagos and two princes of the royal family.
Oba Akiolu’s installation as the Oba of Lagos is being challenged by Prince Adedoyin Adebiyi and Prince Rasheed Modile who are members of the Lagos royal family.
The Governor of Lagos State, the Attorney-General of Lagos State, Prince Babatunde Akitoye and Chief Junaid Eko were joined as respondents in the suit.
Adebiyi and Modile are claiming that Akiolu is not entitled to be on the throne because he is not a member of a ruling royal family by not being a direct descendant of Oba Ado, the first Oba of Lagos.
According to the claimants, only members of the Ologun Kutere and Akinsemoyin ruling households were entitled to the throne.
They have also alleged that proper customary rules and procedures were not followed when he was installed as Oba in May 2003.
