One of the respected Kings in Lagos state and a member of the Saliu royal family, HRM Oba Kabiru Agbabiaka, the Osolo of Isolo has debunked a story presently trending online that he appointed Prince Nurudeen Saliu as Oba-elect of Oworosoki.
Our source who claimed anonymity revealed to us after the video surface internet, ” I asked the Osolo of Isolo, Oba Agbabiaka if truly he annointed Prince Nurudeen as the Oba elect of Oworosoki and Kabiyesii denied, saying what happened was not appointment nor selection, “He came to pay a visit with a large followers and I have to raise his hand up as my son and not as Oba elect” he said.
Oba Agbabiaka noted that only the government have the right to appoint any candidate as the Oba after the family are through with their selected names. He therefore urged everyone to wait patiently to hear from the government in three months time after the final burial of the late Oba Oloworo of Oworo land.
“Oba Agbabiaka advised the community to live in peace and harmony, selection of who becomes the next king should not cause crisis in the community.”
While trying to reach out to Prince Nurudeen Saliu, all efforts prove abortive as at the time of filling this report.
