The Oyo State High Court sitting in Ogbomoso, on Wednesday, upturned the appointment of the new Soun of Ogbomoso, Oba Ghandi Olaoye.

Recall that the state government announced Redeemed Pastor, Olaoye as the new Soun and made him king, on September 8, 2023.

The stool became vacant after the demise of Oba Jimoh Oyewumi Ajagungbade III, in December 2021, at the age of 95 years after he reigned for 48 years.

The Governor of Oyo State, Seyi Makinde had approved the appointment of Olaoye as the Soun of Ogbomosoland.

The selection of Olaoye had become the subject of a court case as the Chairman, Screening Committee for the Laoye ruling house, in Ogbomoso, Abdulwahab Laoye, said the family had not selected anybody to fill the vacant stool of Soun of Ogbomoso, dismissing as mere insinuations, social media report that someone had been selected

He said the ruling house had been dazed with the rumours that one Ghandi Afolabi, a pastor with the RCCG, had been selected.
