The committee refused to make a pronouncement on the court case instituted by Chief Bayo Oyediji of the Seriki family, challenging the Olubadan-in-Council’s choice of the Balogun Olubadan of Ibadan land, High Chief Saliu Adetunji as the late king’s successor, instead of himself as the next Olubadan.
It, however, said that enough arrangement had been put in place to ensure a hitch-free ceremony
