Following the death of Oba Moshood Olalekan Balogun, the late Olubadan of Ibadan land, Oba Owolabi Olakulehin, who is the current Balogun of Ibadanland, who is the head of the military line of the Olubadan system, is set to become the next Olubadan of Ibadan.

Tradition has it that from today, palace drummers and chanters would move from Alli-Iwo to the Ita Baale palace of Oba Olakulehin, heralding his symbolic ascension to the throne.

We had reported that Oba Dr Mohood Lekan Balogun, Alli Okunmade Il, joined his ancestors late Thursday evening at the University College Hospital (UCH), Ibadan as announced by the Oyo State Governor, Engr. Seyi Makinde.

The late Olubadan and incoming Olubadan are from the same Ibadan North East Local Government of Oyo State.

Olakulehin’s son, Sunbo Owolabi, was commissioner for water resources during the administration of late former governor Isiaka Abiola Ajimobi.

According to tradition, the next in line to Olakulehin is Sen. Rashidi Adewolu Ladoja, a former governor of Oyo State and senator, who heads the civil line as Otun Olubadan of Ibadan.

The death of Oba Balogun and the assumption of office by another Olubadan will cause promotion in the Olubadan system, especially in the Balogun line where the new Olubadan will emerge.
