Olubadan of Ibadan land and the Alaafin of Oyo reconciles

A 17 year old royal feud in the heart of Yoruba land ended yesterday as two royal fathers reconciled amidst fun and fanfare.

The Olubadan of Ibadan land, Oba Saliu Adetunji, Aje Ogungunniso I, and the Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi are the royal fathers in question.

It was reported that the Olubadan of Ibadanland and members of Olubadan-in-council visited Oba Adeyemi in his palace at Oyo town.

Oba Adetunji clarified that the purpose of his visit was to thank the Alaafin for his presence during his coronation on Friday, at the Mapo Hall Arcade, Ibadan.

He also disclosed that the visit was to strengthen the cord of unity that binds the two ancient cities together and to promote unity among the Yoruba traditional rulers.

While responding, Oba Adeyemi said he had no problem with the Olubadan describing their relationship as being cordial.

The monarch promised more cordial relationship between the people of Ibadanland and Oyo Kingdom, noting that his relationship with Oba Adeyemi was far back his coronation in 1971.
