He specifically ordered that the new monarchs of Igbajo, Iree and Ikirun communities vacate their palaces pending the determination of their status by government after the submission of the report of a panel that would review their installation.
A statement signed by Igbajo kingmakers and High Chiefs namely Obala Iloro, Odofin Iloro, Lemikan, Odofin, and Saloro of Igbajo urged the governor to ensure that nothing disrupt the peace and tranquility existing in Igbajo after the installation of the monarch.
Also, the ruling houses in Iree, have appealed to the governor to embrace the peace reigning in their community and allow their monarch to continue to preside over their affairs.
A statement signed by the head of Oyekun Ruling House, Iree, Pa Micheal Fajinmi on behalf of five ruling houses, said the Iree community is peaceful and orderly and urged Governor Adeleke to allow the town to enjoy the breath of the fresh air with the new King.
