The publication said “the appellants had appealed against the concurrent decisions of the Oyo State High Court and the Court of Appeal which had both ruled against them over the chieftaincy tussle”.

It added: “In upholding the decisions of the two lower courts, the apex court, on Friday, resolved all the five issues raised in the appeal against the appellants.

“Oba Adegbola became the Eleruwa in 1998, following the death of his predecessor, Oba Bolanle Olaniyan in 1994”.
