TOPSOCIETYNG

The Igbosere High Court of Lagos State has issued a restraining order against Oba Waliu Rasaki Olasunkanmi, also known as Rasaq Oluwo, preventing him from parading himself as the Onibeju of Ibeju-Lekki, Lagos State.

Justice K. O. Dawodu granted the order of mandatory injunction on Tuesday, December 12, 2023, in response to a suit (LD/9297GCMW/2022) brought by Prince Adewale Adeyemi Abdul Rauf Oniwonlu. The suit listed various respondents, including the Executive Governor of Lagos State, the Attorney General of Lagos State, and local government officials.

The applicant, Prince Adewale Adeyemi Abdul Rauf Oniwonlu, represented by lawyer Adedayo Oshodi, sought the mandatory injunction, arguing that the installation of Oba Waliu Rasaki Olasunkanmi proceeded despite the pending lawsuit.

Justice Dawodu, after considering the lawyer’s submissions, emphasized that the first to third defendants were aware of the lawsuit’s pendency before proceeding with the installation. The judge underscored the importance of preserving the sanctity of the court.

As a result, Oba Waliu Rasaki Olasunkanmi is now restrained from calling or parading himself as the Onibeju of IbejuLand until the substantive suit is heard and determined.

The case has been adjourned to February 14, 2024, for the hearing of the substantive suit.
