The Olubadan of Ibadanland, Oba Saliu Adetunji has removed Chief Saheed Alatise, Baale Lagelu Aboke in Ido Local Government of Oyo State.

According to a Press release issued by the Monarch’s Publicist, Adeola Oloko, the chief’s removal as Baale Lagelu Aboke takes immediate effect.

Part of reasons given for his removal is his involvement in one crisis or the other, since he became Baale in September, 2017.

“The Olubadan-in-Council for which his case was referred following persistent complaints over his conduct and gross violation of Ibadan Customs and Traditions unanimously decided and recommended his removal to Olubadan during their meeting at Olubadan palace, Popoyemoja, Ibadan today (Monday)”, the statement read.

The Council noted that while the removed Baale had been accused of one allegation or the other over the past one year, his continued refusal to defend himself is an act of disrespect against Olubadan and is punishable under Ibadan Customs and Traditions.

Part of the allegations leveled against the removed Baale is that he falsely presented himself for chieftaincy installation as Baale Aboke when he is not a male child of the family.

In a letter written by members of Lagelu Aboke family of Ibadan to Olubadan-in-Council and signed by Ganiyu Oladokun Okerinu Aboke (Family Head); Tiamiyu Lamidi Okerinu Aboke (Baale) and the secretary of the family, it was stated that Saheed Alatise who hails from Agbede Adodo, Ibadan cannot honestly represent Lagelu Aboke family
