Romance Scandal: Egba Traditional Council Disowns Oba Tejuoso

By Our Correspondent

Members of the Egba Traditional Council ( ETC) have disclaimed the recommendation and appointment of Mr Adetokunbo Tejuoso, an indigene of one of Kemta Villages, as a monarch of the township.

The President of the Egba Traditional Council, and Alake of Egbaland, Oba Adedotun Aremu Gbadebo, in a press release issued on  Wednesday, 28 April, 2021, said the appointment of Mr Tejuoso was still subject of court action against the current administration of Ogun State.

SalientTimes had reported that Oba Tejuoso who is Olu of Kemta, one of the 75 coronet Obas installed by former governor Ibikunle Amosun at the twilight of his administration, was accused of orchestrating love scam on three different women, to receive funds from them, and falsely promised them affection and high regard, was arrested by the Police last week.

In the statement by the Egba Traditional Council, it noted "that it was also improper and falsifying for Tejuoso to have been masquerading himself either in the garb of an Egba Traditional Ruler or that of Ogun State Council of Obas, when he was fully aware that his pretence to be one was both criminal and disgraceful to the revered Egba Traditional Institution".

"Mr Tejuoso was never recommended for Obaship, and should not have been parading himself as a member of the Egba Traditional Council or the Ogun State Council of Obas, since his appointment was still before the Ogun State High Court".

“For avoidance of doubt, Adetokunbo Tejuoso should face his alleged involvement in suspected crime with the Police as a citizen.”

“We wish to reassure the good people of Egbaland that Egba Traditional Council would continue to uphold the sanctity of the sacredness of the Age Long Egba Traditional Institution.”
