Plans Ongoing At Resolving Oyo LCDA Suit Out Of Court – Alaafin


By; BAYO AKAMO, Ibadan.
Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi on Tuesday hinted that plans are ongoing at resolving the suit filed by the fifteen village heads in Oyo town against the Oyo state government on the creation of Local Council Development Areas (LCDA) out of court,
Oba Adeyemi dropped this hint in Ibadan during an interview with newsmen shortly after a closed door meeting with Governor Abiola Ajimobi at his office, Secretariat, Ibadan.
The Alaafin pointed out that though the case was as at present in court, there were plans to reconcile it with the aggrieved parties.
Oba Adeyemi added that the suit filed by some aggrieved traditional chiefs challenging the alleged ceding of parts of their domain to Ogbomoso under the newly created LCDA would be resolved amicably very soon in order not to subject the people to hardship.
It will be recalled that Chief Oladokun Abiola and 14 others from Oyo East Local Government had challenged the creation of the new LCDAs before an Abuja FHC court on the premise that it would ostracize them from their ancestral land, while the Alaafin was joined as a respondent in the matter.
