It would be recalled that the Existing Chieftaincy Rotational Agreement was between the four Ruling Houses in the area and the matter is pending before the High Court, Koton-Karfe.

The group in a statement on Saturday and made available to newsmen in Lokoja, Kogi State capital, described the action as purely gross violation of the existing Suit before the High Court Koton Karfe of Kogi State.

“The Selection and Nomination Process of the Next ELULU is being challenged, based on the Existing Chieftaincy Rotational Agreement between the 4 Ruling Houses in mopa, we were surprised to hear about his installation despite restraining order.”

The group recalled that the High Court setting in Koton-Karfe, Kogi Local Government Area of the State had in a ruling issued an interim Order directing all parties to maintain status quo ante.

The Otunba of Mopa, who is the 1st Defendant before the High Court Koton-karfe, on the 17th day of May secretly installed the said Muyiwa Ibeun at Night wherein selected members of his traditional Council were present and some who stood against the process were not present based on the Existing Order of the Court.

“This is a clear indication of a determined intent of MTC to disrespect legal process and overturn justice.”

“We are surprised by the speed and secrecy associated with this illegal installation event of a first class Oba supervising not only Mopa but the entire Mopamuro traditional council.”

“This is a desperation taken too far, Ordinarily a celebration of this magnitude call for state, national and global participation. Our suspicion for this is not unconnected with a grand plan by MTC to impose an illegal Elulu on the good people of Mopa before any decision of the court on the matter.”

“We reiterate our stand that while we await the court decision on this matter, all parties must respect the rule of law and abide by the principles of fairness and justice.we also call on the Executive Governor to direct the security agencies to investigate those involved in this illegality.”

In a similar development, some chiefs and kingmakers who distance themselves from the coronation, owing to the existing court order, described the event as null and void.

According to them, it is shameful and disgraceful that a King that supposed to be a custodian of the people is being coronated secretly in the night to avoid being noticed.
