One head of Ogun state, Odofin of Ijejaland, Sunday Oluwole, has reportedly been suspended with immediate effect.

Odofin’s suspension was contained in a letter written by Kehinde Amusa of Hassan Amusa & Co., Abeokuta, says a Daily Post report.

Amusa had reportedly written on behalf of the Odofin Complex in ljeja, Abeokuta, following a meeting held by the leaders of the complex attended by the Baale of Odofin village, Ijeja, Chief Semiu Lawal; the secretary, Elder EO Olatomi; the Mufasir Musulumi of ljeja, Alh. Surajudeen Lawal; and Elder Obayomi Olori-Ebi.

Oluwole’s suspension was the result of an announcement he made about a controversial Oluwo title in Ijeja, Abeokuta, the Daily Post reports.

“We, as the lawyers of the Odofin Composite, ljeja Abeokuta, hereby announce the immediate and automatic suspension of Chief Sunday Oluwole Odofin of Ijeja Land as an Accredited Composite Representative in the Ogboni Chambers (Ile Ogboni).

“From now on, you must stop displaying yourself as a recognized and representative of ljejaland on the lle Ogboni. The Ogboni ljeja, Ogboni Egba, Olorogun Ologun of ljeja and Egbaland, Parakoyi of Ijeja and Egbaland are notified of this latest development by this public,” the letter read in part.

The letter dated January 9, 2023 was made available to the Egba Traditional Council led by the Alake and supreme ruler of Egbaland, Oba Adedotun Gbadebo, and other stakeholders.
