In a statement titled public notice, signed by the head of the family, Pastor Gaius Obarinu, members of the publicwere warned against being cajoled by Olofin Ajaye, Oba Adewale Abdul whose stool is still a subject of litigation.
The press statement read thus:
“This is to inform the general public that all the lands in Ajebo both sides, Panshala, Hausa both sides and inward Orugbo-Iddo community belongs to Olusi descendant family.
“It was brought to our notice that one Mr Adewale Mushafau Abdul is parading himself as a king and therefore taking people to our lands and even advertising our lands for sales on radio programmes.
“We are stating categorically here that Mr Adewale Mushafau Abdul is not known to Olusi family whose turn is to produce a king and we are not recognizing him as a king in Orugbo-Iddo community.
“Adewale Abdul is an indigene of Ijebu-Ode, he forged his paternal background and claimed to be a member of Olusi Royal Family which the family refuted.
“The matter of his eligibility to contest for the stool of Oba Olofin Ajaye with suit number id/2178gem/2017 is already before a competent court of law.
“We therefore advise the general public not to transact any business on landed properties in the name of Olusi family or Orugbo-Iddo community with Adewale Abdul.”
