Confusion As Royal Family Asks Oba Gbolahan Lawal To Return The Oniru Crown, Admits He’s Illegitimate For The Stool


When the system of selection of ruler is riddled with conspiracy and selfish plot, the consequence is usually grave on the generality of the community.


The Oniru of Iruland Gbolahan Lawal has become a nemesis to his patrons and handlers, as he has turned the Iruland that we knew as a place of solace, to home for thugs, assassins and marauders.


Ever since Gbolahan ascended the undeserved stool, numerous people ‘disappeared’ under his reign and several respected men and women in the community have been attacked and harassed by his boys.


There are countless cases of Gbolahan’s thugs inflicting life-threatening injuries and metaphysical charms on anyone he suspects to be an opposition.


There are also indications that the Oniru is disillusioned that he has not only dumped his key people who risked everything to give him the underserved Obaship status, but also turned them to disposable entities.


Recently some legitimate and recognised royal families of Iruland could no longer take the excesses of Gbolahan Lawal, whose reign has been on record as an imposed crown bearer, who has been handpicked to do the bidding of his paymaster, and they call for his removal from the royal stool.


The Ewumi Branch of Abisogun Ruling House recently called on Gbolahan Lawal to vacate the stool for Prince Hakeem Ajasa, who was one of the legitimate candidates for the stool at the time.


It was reported that Ajasa willingly surrendered his aspiration to Gbolahan, who was never in the race at the time.


Prince Monsuru Ajasa, who spoke on behalf of the Abisogun family said that Prince Gbolahan Lawal never showed interest from the inception of the In-house, Ewumi Royal family and larger Abisogun family nomination, selection and election processes such that Prince Lawal’s mother even gave her consent and blessings to Prince Ajasa’s selection/election when visited at Iru Family Resettlement Scheme.”


Prince Monsuru Ajasa further stated that Hakeem Ajasa was elected at the Olori Ebi’s House in Mile 2, Lagos and all Prince Lawal’s siblings were present, evidence that Prince Lawal was not amongst the contenders and did not show interest neither did he follow due the process as stipulated by the Chieftaincy regulations but was merely imposed on the family by Bola Tinubu.




In view of this development, therefore, the Abisogun have now rejected Prince Gbolahan Lawal in totality. The Ewumi Royal family of Abisogun Ruling House have since requested that Prince Gbolahan Lawal returns the crown and also vacate the throne.




Gbolahan’s reign of terror and his ruthless style of rulership has not only seized the peaceful serenity that the people of Iru once enjoyed,


Wherever Gbolahan passed, the grass will never grow again. He has demonstrated a chilling disregard for the sufferings of his own people and mercilessly crushed any opposition.


Things have fallen apart and the centre can no longer hold in the fold of Gbolahan. Heads are already rolling in his own fold.

He has ordered his thugs to take to the streets to intimidate and suppress anyone who challenge his excesses and recklessness in Iruland.


Recall the viral video that showed how some men were attacked by Gbolahan’s thug in December 2020, at a family shrine, where many people were severely injured and the 200 years old shrine was reduced to nothing.

Gbolahan’s reign is replete with examples of less than stellar leadership. His penchant for violence, murder, genocidal tendencies, and other deviancies is unquantifiable.

It is hoped that the paymasters who imposed him, will see through his tyrannical style of leadership and treat the situation as a matter of urgency, as his paranoia may destroy Iruland.

Buhari Will Commission Dangote Refinery Before May 29 -Dangote Group



The attention of Dangote group has been drawn to some misleading reports regarding the commissioning of its Dangote Refinery during the present working visit of President Muhammadu Buhari GCFR to Lagos State.


In a terse statement signed by the Group Chief, Branding & Communications Officer, Dangote Industries Limited, Mr Anthony Chiejina, the Group averred that “We want to state categorically that our 650,000 barrels per day (bpd) Refinery project was never part of the President’s programme on projects to be commissioned.


“For the record, the projects slated for commissioning in Lagos State by President Muhammadu Buhari GCFR include: Lekki Deep Sea Port; 32-Metric Tonnes Lagos Rice Mill, Imota; 18.75km Eleko to Epe T Junction Express road; John Randle Centre for Yoruba Culture and History, Onikan, Blue Line Rail (Phase 1) commissioning (Marina to Mile 2); Groundbreaking for the Blue Line Rail Phase 2 (Mile 2 to Okokomaiko), and MRS Lubricant, a private project in Apapa.


However, our Refinery will be commissioned before President Muhammadu Buhari GCFR formally leaves office in May, 2023, and the public will be duly informed and invited to the epic event.”

Before this statement today, Business Hilights recalls that there had been a fake news in an unverified twitter handle saying President Buhari will among other things commission the refinery which the company debunked and described as fake.
