Ogun first class Oba withdraws Okorocha’s chieftaincy title

An Ogun state first-class traditional ruler, Oba Akintunde Akinyemi, the Eselu of Iselu Kingdom, has announced the withdrawal of the chieftaincy title of Otunba Asoludero bestowed on Rochas Okorocha, former Imo State governor.

The installation ceremony, which was supposed to be held on September 19, was cancelled as contained in a letter dated August 9, signed by the Oba Akinyemi and addressed to the Senator.

The first class monarch had recently pronounced the lawmaker as the Otunba Asoludero of Iselu kingdom in Yewa -North Local Government Area of Ogun but said that the conferment was due to Okorocha’s efforts in unifying different tribes across the country.

However, the monarch in a letter on Monday explained that the chieftaincy title was withdrawn “in the interest of peace and harmony”.
