Three Kwara Traditional Title Holders Suspended Over Disloyalty, Indiscipline

Three traditional title holders of Ekan land in Oke-Ero Local Government Area of Kwara State have been suspended.

They are High Chief Obajemu of Ekan land, Michael Ademola Oyinloye, High Chief Esinkin of Ekan land, Thomas Olarewaju Ashaolu and Chief Obaoye of Ekan land, Gabriel Oluwasegun Olarewaju.

The decision to suspend the chiefs was taken at the expanded meeting of Elekan in Council held at the palace of Elekan of Ekan.

A Communique issued at the end of the meeting and signed by Chief Obanurin of Ekanland, Chief Awoyemi Raphael Ajiboye and Osolo of Ekanland, Chief Timothy Jolayemi, accused the suspended chiefs of failing to attend scheduled meetings, disloyalty, breach of confidence, intolerable level of indiscipline, and abominable behaviour that are not compatible with the exalted positions they occupy within the community.

The communique noted that as a result of the various allegations, the Elekan in council, resolved to suspend the affected chiefs indefinitely, with immediate effect pending further investigation and disciplinary proceedings.

It further stated that the affected chiefs are forbidden from parading themselves as high chiefs of Ekanland and are barred from partaking in all palace and traditional activities of the town until they purge themselves of the numerous traditional misconducts and offences which are not compatible with their oaths of office.

It urged all sons and daughters of Ekan and the general public to note the development and treat accordingly.
