Ekiti State Government has warned the Olupoti of Ipoti Ekiti

The Ekiti State Government has warned the Olupoti of Ipoti Ekiti, Oba Oladipupo Kolade, to stop further installation of chiefs in disputed boundaries with Owatedo Ekiti and Ejiyan Ekiti.

The Deputy Governor, Otunba Bisi Egbeyemi, gave the warning at a peace meeting with traditional rulers and interest groups from the three communities in his office on Tuesday in Ado-Ekiti the state capital.

The meeting was consequent upon petitions by the Oloja Owa of Owatedo Ekiti, Oba Olawumi Olofinlade and Ejiyan Development Council who accused the Olupoti of installing chiefs beyond his kingdom after the two communities had gained autonomy from Ipoti.

The Deputy Governor however directed the setting up of a Committee to properly demarcate the boundaries among the three communities to include the Surveyor General and Ijero Local Government Traditional Council.

Otunba Egbeyemi urged residents of the three communities to allow peace to reign and cooperate with the government to resolve the dispute amicably to foster peace, togetherness and development.
