NEWSCASTARS.COM however learn from Saturday Beats’ that an indigene of the town who spoke on condition of anonymity said, “There are five ruling houses in the town and someone in his (Odunlade)’s lineage has been king before in recent times. It has not got to his family’s turn but if he is interested in the throne, he can fight for it because the governor (Kayode Fayemi) likes him.
Presently, the five ruling houses are jostling to produce the king and they even visited the governor’s office today (Friday).”
However, another source, who is a prince in the town said, “Contrary to the news that has been flying around, Odunlade Adekola, is not going to be the next king of the town. He said he was interested in becoming the king but he was not accepted because it is not the turn of his family to produce the king.”
