Court Sacks Ghandi As Soun


The appointment of the new Soun of Ogbomoso, Oba Ghandi Olaoye has been upturned by the Oyo State High Court sitting in Ogbomoso.

Recall that the Oyo State Government on the 8th of September, 2023, announced Pastor Ghandi Olaoye as the new Soun and made him king.

Before this time, one of the contestants, Kabir Laoye had sued Ghandi Olaoye, noting that he was not eligible to take Soun’s position.

The Oyo state High Court in Ogbomoso at the time had reportedly restrained Governor Seyi Makinde, the Attorney General of the State and Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Matters or anyone else from presenting any instrument of office in any form of ceremony or issuing certificate of installation to Olaoye until the final determination of the mandatory injunction already filed before the court.

The Areago High Chief, Sobalaje Otolorin, however, disclosed that the kingmakers were not aware of a restraining order by any court.

Sobalaje Otolorin led the installation that took place in Abata

Pastor Ghandi then proceeded into seclusion to commence traditional rites attached to the throne.
