Court grants injunction against new Kogi monarch




A Kogi State High Court sitting in Lokoja has granted an interlocutory injunction, restraining Chief Solomon Owoniyi from parading himself as the Obaro of Kabba.

It restrained Owoniyi from doing anything relating to the position pending the determination of the substantive motion on the matter.

Justice M. M. Gwatana also ordered the Kogi State government and the state chieftaincy council who are joined in the suit, be stopped from recognizing Owoniyi or any other person except from the Ilajo Royal family for the throne.

The Ilajo Royal family had challenged Owoniyi’s appointment on the ground that he is not a member of the family.
