The traditional ruler of Iguruland in Aguda, Surulere of Lagos State, King Buhari Oloto is dead.
Naija News gathered the monarch died at the age of 80 at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH), Ikeja.
The traditional ruler died about ten months after he was installed on September 2, 2020, as the first Oba of Iguruland.
It is further understood that the installation of Oloto, a well-known socialite as a traditional ruler didn’t go down well with some people of the community.
Some indigenes, led by Mutalubi Ayinde Kadiri, disputed his installation and recognition by the Lagos State Government, pointing out that the matter is pending in court.
Specifically, he argued that the Appeal Court had issued an injunction on August 30 against the installation.
Similarly, another native, Owolabi Irawo, a member of the Iguru Royal family, condemned the decision of the Lagos state government in enthroning Oloto.
“It is surprising to see Lagos State Government crown our opponent, Buhari Oloto. We have been on the case for over 14 years, the matter is in the Appeal Court”, he said.
