Traditional council disowns controversial ‘traditional ruler’ over romance scandal

The Kemta Traditional Council of Chiefs in Egbaland has disowned the embattled controversial ‘traditional ruler’ of the community, Adetokunbo Tejuosho alleged to have been involved in romance scam leading to his arrest by the police.

Penpushing reports that the council  distanced itself from the issues in a communiqué issued at a meeting held at Ile Ogboni Kemta  which was jointly signed by Chief Yomi Rotimi(Oluwo Kemta),Chief Oluwatosin Fadare(Lukotun Kemta) and Chief Bola Taiwo(Sakotun Kemta).

The communiqué described the alleged action, arrest and detention of Tejuoso as embarrassing to the community, adding that he was not a qualified traditional ruler of the community, rather was engaged in impersonation.

‘The council expressed dismay at the arrest and detention of Chief Tejuoso which is described as very embarrassing. Consequently, the council decided to make some clarifications on the matter; Adetokunbo Tejuoso was installed as Baale Adebonyin in Orile Kemta, Odeda Local Government of Ogun State.

*He was appointed Olu of Orile Kemta by the immediate past administration in Ogun State without the recommendation of Kemta Traditional Council of Chiefs and approval of HRM Oba(Dr) Adedotun Aremu Gbadebo, Alake and Paramount Ruler of Egbaland

*The present administration revisited the process through which the 75 coronet Obas were installed by the last administration and upon the recommendation of a committee set up to review the matter reverted the coronet Obas to their earlier positions as Baales’

*The concerned coronet Obas took the case to court which ruled that the status-quo be maintained. Status-quo , in this context means that the Obas shall remain Baales as directed by the government. Unfortunately, Chief Adetokunbo Tejuoso continued to parade himself as an Oba without being checked by government agencies and security officials’

Penpushing further reports that, in view of the development, the council on  April 28 suspended Tejuoso over allegations of romance scam and other fraudulent acts leveled against him by people with documented evidences, stressing that, hence, he(Tejuoso) ceased to be a Chief in Kemta township

‘We therefore enjoin gentlemen of the media and the general public to henceforth stop regarding Mr Adetokunbo Tejuoso as either Baale Adaboyin village or Olu of Kemta which is still before the court of law’.

Penpushing also reports that, the communiqué, copy sent to Alake of Egbaland appealed to all sons and daughters of Kemta at home and abroad to remain calm as the traditional council is doing all the needed on the matter.
