Ondo suspends Akungba-Akoko monarch’s coronation

The Ondo State government has suspended the coronation ceremony of the new Alale of Akungba-Akoko in Akoko Southwest local government scheduled for next Saturday.
A letter with reference CD/C.68 vol.1V 241 sent to the Alale-elect, Prince Sunday Ajimoh by the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Adeyemi Adeyemo said the state government had received several petitions and security reported against the planned coronation.

It said: “Government has considered the development and decided that in the interest of sustenance of the prevailing peace in Akungba-Akoko Community and the State in general, the coronation ceremony is hereby postponed until further notice as may be directed by the state government.
The statement noted that relevant security agencies have been informed of the development, urging the Alale-elect to ensure strict compliance with the government order.

There had been controversies over the appointment of Prince Ajimoh as Alale-elect few weeks to the exit of former governor Olusegun Mimiko in office.
Sources said another Alale-elect, Prince Isiaka Oseni Adu had been appointed since 2007 but could not be presented with staff of office by the state government until Ajimoh was given fresh appointment by Mimiko’s administration at the twilight of its tenure.
The case is pending at the Appeal Court.
