Court dismisses suit seeking to remove Oba of Lagos

An Ikeja High Court has dismissed a suit seeking to oust Rilwan Akiolu, as the Oba of Lagos. Justice A. Candide-Johnson held that the claimants, Prince Adedoyin Adebiyi and Prince Rasheed Modile, two members of the Lagos royal family, failed to prove their case.

Prince Adedoyin Adebiyi and Oba Prince Rasheed Modile are challenging Oba Rilwan Akiolu as the rightful monarch. The two plaintiffs are both from the Akinsemoyin ruling house, and claim that they were chosen by the family to contest the title, after the demise of the late Oba of Lagos, Oba Adeyinka Oyekan, the 2nd.  

They say he has no rightful claim to the throne but Oba Akiolu says he was righfully chosen by the kingmakers, which led to his coronation on May 23, 2003.
