The king of Yoruba community in Bayelsa state, Oba Suleiman Oguntunji Oluwaloni has condemned in strong terms the recent crowning of a parallel king in the state.

Speaking to newsmen in Yenagoa, Oba Suleiman Oguntunji Oluwaloni stated that he is the only recognized and authentic king of the community in the state, stressing that the action taken by an opposition group by crowning another king negates the customs, tradition and culture of Yorubas worldwide.

He however called on all relevant authorities in the state to step into the matter by calling the opposition group to order, maintaining that his kingship of the community in the state is not only recognized by all Yorubas residing in the state but also by the “Igbimo Apapo Yoruba Lagbaye”, the apex Yoruba interest group under the grand patronship of His Majesty, the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, the Ojaja II.

In view of this ugly development, he also disclosed that his counsel, Juryman Associate Chambers has already written a petition to the Commissioner of Police, Bayelsa state Command, CP Ben Okolo which stated in clear terms the obnoxious and provocative conducts of the opposition group in the state.

The petition which was written and signed by Oladotun Hassan Esq. further noted that the group’s action is a calculated attempt at misinforming unsuspecting general public, particularly the state government thereby discrediting the integrity of the king and that of his numerous subjects across the state.

Oba Suleiman Oguntunji Oluwaloni further opined that the action of the group has subjected him to untold hardship and palpable fear, adding that the essence of the petition is to call on the Commissioner of Police to accelerate detailed investigation into the action of the opposition group and prosecute them accordingly.

He assured his numerous subjects across the state that he would never be deterred by the action of this group, calling on them to disregard the cooked up and purported crowning of a parallel king in the state.

He quoted the constitution of Yoruba community in the state as a backup which states that the structure of the community shall be divided into the permanent Palace Chiefs structure and the elected executives, adding that section 8,subsection 5 states that “Chiefs Council shall be for life”.

In view of this, he posited that the opposition group has no right whatsoever to enthrone another king in the state, stressing that the constitution of the community is supreme as stated in section 2 and subsection 1.
