For the first time, Counsel to Oba Abdulrasheed Adewale Akanbi, Chief
Abimbola Ige appeared for the ruling.

Earlier, on Monday, June 19, 2017, Counsel to Chief  Abiola Ogundokun,
Barrister Soji Oyetayo had argued his application for motion on notice
brought pursuant to Order 38 rule 4 of Osun High Court seeking for an
order of interlocutory injunction restraining Oluwo, Oba Abdulrasheed
Adewale Akanbi and Imam Fatai Olododo from installing another Bashorun
Musulumi of Iwo land.

His motion was relying on deposition to a 13-paragraph affidavit by
Chief Ogundokun as well as filed, written, address and argument in
support of the application by the counsel.

He therefore urged the Judge to grant the application since the respondents, Oba Akanbi and Imam Olododo have failed to file a counter reply to the application
despite the fact that they have been served to contradict the disposition in the affidavit. The trial Judge adjourned the main suit to October 3, 2017 for hearing.
Ex-Commander-In-Chief, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo....Surprised at Oluwo's Conduct with Chief Abiola Ogundokun
The Oluwo of Iwo Oba Abdulrasheed Adewale Akanbi had announced on Sunday April 30, 2017  that he has stripped the eminent Politician and elder statesman, High Chief Abiola Ogundokun off his titles of Bashorun Musulumi of Iwo Land  which is an Islamic title and Otun Balogun of Iwo land (Which he substituted with the title of OBANLA of Iwo land on January 8, 2017).

 Oba Akanbi claimed that Chief Ogundokun was rude to him at a public event which the Chief has since denied. The High Chief who is one of the Oba’s sponsors and benefactors claimed that Oluwo became hostile to him when he advised the youtful Oba against some misguided royal conducts of taking monies from several indigenes who want to take chieftaincy titles from him, only to give same title to his favorite after taking money from many others. A situation which led to someone dying in the past with  the family bringing the corpse to taunt the Oba in the palace.

Chief Ogundokun also claimed that he scolded the youtful Oluwo over some hooliganistic acts which includes sodomy, heavy drinking and other nefarious behaviors that is unbecoming of his status as a first class Oba.

The Oluwo has also court controversy with other traditional rulers in Osun state among which are the Oluwo of Iwo Oke, Oba Kadiri Adeoye, Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi (Ojaja II) and the Olubadan of Ibadan land among many others.

Ogundokun sued Oluwo last month over  some silly statements the Oba made on his person and threats to his life and stripping of his title of Basorun Musulumi which he earned some forty years ago from the Muslim Community in Iwo and other district in Osun West Senatorial zone among other titles given to him for his humanitarian gestures in Iwo land, Osun State and Nigeria.
