Oba Ibeun’s Coronation as Elulu of Mopa and the Purported Court Restraining Order

Spread the love

The emergence and coronation of Otunba Muyiwa Ibeun as the new Elulu of Mopa was celebrated far and wide. However, similar voices of dissent have raised an issue bordering on a purported court order restraining kingmakers from selecting a new monarch for the ancient town.

However, it was gathered that the court restraining order preventing the Otunba of Mopa, Chief David Saul Olojo from leading Mopa King Makers to coronate or install a new Elulu of Mopa has been struck out.

Recall that Otunba Olojo led Mopa King Makers to coronate and install Oba Muyiwa Ibeun as the 4th Elulu of Mopaland on Thursday 17th of May.

Investigation revealed that in a judgement signed by the Assistant Chief Registrar, Mr. Hassan Gimba Shuaibu, the court granted the prayer of the applicant, represented by A.O. Jonathan seeking the withdrawal of the Motion: HC/KK/014M/2025.

Which invariably means the court approves that a successor should be coronated to succeed the Late Elulu, His Royal Majesty Julius Funsho Joledo.

Recall that the Mopa King Makers has already selected and nominated Oba Muyiwa Ibeun as Elulu-elect before the court injunction.

The court granted the prayer as there were no objection from the defendant’s counsel, and hereby struck out the case.

The document further revealed that the application for withdrawal was because the 1st respondent (Otunba of Mopa, David Saul Olojo) filled a counter affidavit challenging the court injunction.

Investigation also shows that some section of Mopa people and the general public has been misled by some persons who have inordinate ambition or may have contested the selection process with Oba Ibeun. This is to set the records straight.
