Ogun State Government on Thursday said it had intervened in the lingering chieftaincy tussle in Idi-Emi, Abeokuta North Local Government.

It also barred the two contestants for the traditional stool, Chief Aliu Malomo and Alhaji Abdulrahman Darafunjo, from parading themselves as the Baale of the community. The state Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Mr. Muyiwa Oladipo, stated this at a meeting with the contestants to the stool where he said a seven-man panel to administer the community, pending the resolution of the matter, had been constituted by the state government.

A source privy to the meeting told our correspondent that a prominent monarch in the local government was linked to the crisis as he was said to have attempted to impose his candidate on the community.

Meanwhile, Oladipo, in a statement by the ministry’s Press Officer, Lateef Ositelu, said the intervention of the state government had helped to restore peace in the community.

He also assured the people that the seven-man panel would take over the running of Idi-Emi community, pending the time the state government would find a lasting solution to the crisis.

He warned all the parties in the dispute to remain peaceful and law abiding.
