The Oluseye Ruling Family of Ilupeju Oke Odo Gbagura in Abeokuta North Local Government Area of Ogun State has approached a State High Court sitting in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital, over the stool of Olu of Ilupeju Oke Odo Gbagura.

The family is seeking an order of the court to restrain Governor Dapo Abiodun, the Attorney General of the State, Ogun State Executive Council and Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs from giving any recognition to Mr. Saheed Balogun Agbaje as the Olu of Ilupeju Oke Odo Gbagura.

The family is also praying for an order of the court restraining the governor and the three others from installing or giving a staff of office to Saheed Balogun Agbaje as the Olu of Ilupeju Oke Odo Gbagura even as it seeks a perpetual injunction restraining him from parading himself or holding himself out as the 
Olu of Ilupeju Oke Odo Gbagura.

Also dragged to court alongside the governor and three others, were the Alake of Egbaland, Oba Adedotun Aremu Gbadebo, the Agura of Gbaguraland, Oba Saburee Babajide Bakre and two additional persons,   requesting the court to nullify the appointment of Saheed Balogun as the Olu of Ilupeju Oke Odo.

The claimants on behalf of the Oluseye Ruling Family of Ilupeju Oke Odo Gbagura are Prince Monsuru Akanbi Oluseye, Prince Sulaimon Allan Oluseye and Prince Gbolahan Babatunde Oluseye.

They are through a writ of summons, dated October 8, filed by their counsel, Wale Abeeb Ajayi of the law firm of Wale Abeeb Ajayi & Co, also asking the court to set aside the chieftaincy declaration of Olu of Ilupeju Oke Odo, Gbagura.

Joined in the case were Egba Traditional Council and Saheed Balogun Agbaje.

The claimants also prayed the court to set aside the nomination, appointment and approval of Agbaje as the Olu of Ilupeju Oke Odo.

They alleged that, the selection, nomination and appointment of Agbaje were contrary to the customs and traditions of Ilupeju Oke Odo, Gbagura.

The claimants insisted that upon the demise of the immediate past Olu of Ilupeju Oke Odo, Late Oba Mufutau Akindele, it was the turn of their family to produce the next king.

The matter, however, has neither been given a date nor assigned to a particular court for mention.
