Olubadan denies honouring Auxiliary with chieftaincy title

The Olubadan of Ibadanland, Oba Lekan Balogun, has denied  conferriy chieftaincy title on Chairman of Oyo State Park Management System, PMS, Mr. Lamidi Mukaila, fondly called Auxiliary, described described the claim as satanic.

Olubadan, in a statement by his Personal Assistant, Media, Oladele Ogunsola, described the claim as assassination of character, adding that: "It is malicious and ridiculous and one cannot but wonder how somebody could come up with such a lie from the pit of hell."

Recall that Mukaila, who is the Chairman of the state PMS, was said to have been conferred with Are Ajagunla of Yorubaland at a ceremony allegedly held at the ancient Mapo Hall, an hinterland of Ibadan metropolis.

The statement said: "The news of the said installation was heard in the palace just like any other person on the supposed day it was to be held, asking that how would Olubadan be tagged with such a questionable act and something he had no knowledge of? 

"Though, there are some claims that the PMS Chairman had some form of attachments to the Aliwo ruling house where Olubadan hails from, there's nothing common between him and the palace to warrant anything of such.

"Aside, paradventure, Oba Balogun sighted the PMS boss on the television in the last one year, that's the only reason he won't be able to claim not to have seen him in the last one year. Would somebody become a chief under him without having interacted in the last one year or even more." The monarch queried?

Balogun, therefore, asked members of the public to discountenance the claim and regard it as a wicked rumour aimed at tarnishing his reputation and may be for quacks parading themselves as journalists nowadays to gain tracking for their mushroom platforms.
