A High Court in Owo, Ondo state has dethroned the Olute of Ute, Ose Local Government Area (LGA), Oba Michael Adetunji Oluwole.

Gatekeepers News reports that Oba Oluwole has been in a legal tussle with the Olule Omolaja Ruling House.

The Olule Omolaja Ruling House had challenged the retired Army Major’s right to ascend the throne for the past 29 years.

Justice Ademola Enikuomehin of the Owo High Court nullified the selection process that brought Oba Oluwole to the throne and ordered a fresh selection process on Tuesday.

He also ordered Oluwole to stop parading himself as the town’s traditional ruler and asked that a new selection process from within the Olule Omoloja ruling house commence.

Justice Enikuomehin ruled that the deposed monarch had no right to the throne as one of the kingmakers.

He said, “Oluwole has no right to the throne, being a member of the Kingmakers’; he should no make himself king.”

The Counsel to the claimant, Adewumi Fabuluje said the ruling was a victory for the Olule Omolaja Ruling House adding that the case began in 1995 and has been taken to all courts.

Counsel to the state, F.K Salami, said the judgment would be reviewed and necessary action shall be taken.
