Speaking Galaxy television in Ibadan, Asipa Balogun of Ibadan-land, Oba Gbadamosi Adebimpe accused the monarch of leading the Olubadan council astray, stressing that the council cannot be ruling Ibadan like an emperor.
He maintained that his colleagues' (Obas) are ready to call his Imperial Majesty to order in the interest of all sons and daughters of Ibadan, adding that if he failed to comply at the expiration of the 21 days ultimatum, the 21 newly crowned Obas will carry out their threat.
