Family asks court to nullify installation of six Baales in Ogun




Principal members of Osa, Imidawo, Ogunrounbi and Alagbeji of Adogun Atele family, popularly known as Itele family, have asked an Ogun State High Court to nullify the appointment and installation of six ‘Baales’ (village heads) in Itele-Awori in Ado-Odo/ Ota Local Government Area of Ogun State.

The claimants, Nurudeen Akanbi Akapo, Sunday Mathew Owotolu, Chief Taoreed Momodu Dada, and Alhaji Monsuru Ashifatu Yusuf, being descendants of Adogun Atele, are seeking a declaration that they are the only ones entitled to be installed as Baales and traditional chiefs in any part of Itele Awori.

In a suit filed by their counsel, Olanrewaju Balogun, the claimants prayed the court to restrain the defendants: Olota of Ota, Oba Abdulkabir Obalanlege and Chief Abraham Idowu Akanle, from further nominating, appointing and installing any person or persons as Baale in Itele, which is under the control and management of Onitele of Itele.
