Former RCCG Pastor Who Became Ogbomoso’s Monarch Will Perform Traditional Rituals For Seven Days

The preacher, who was located in the US, flew into Ogbomoso early on Friday morning in a private helicopter. He then proceeded to the palace after landing at the Ogbomoso Grammar School.

Ghandi Laoye, a former pastor at the Redeemed Christian Church of God, has started his ceremonial ceremonies since being sworn in as the new Soun of Ogbomoso in Oyo State on Friday.

The preacher, who was located in the US, flew into Ogbomoso early on Friday morning in a private helicopter. He then proceeded to the palace after landing at the Ogbomoso Grammar School.

When Oba Jimoh Oyewumi died on December 12, 2021, the Soun of Ogbomoso throne became vacant.

The state administration would then hand over the staff of office to the new monarch following a seven-day period of seclusion, according to PUNCH.

On the advice of the RCCG General Overseer, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, Laoye resigned from his position as a pastor a few days ago and handed over leadership to Pastor Olumide Ogunjuyigbe.

Muhammed Laoye, a family member who opposed Laoye’s nomination by the kingmakers, left for court, claiming that the procedure that led to his creation was ineffective. They added that a minority committee, rather than the entire family, handled the assignment.

Laoye’s appointment as the new Soun was approved by Governor Seyi Makinde on September 2 in a statement by Olusegun Olayiwola, the Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Matters.

However, on Thursday, a state high court in Ogbomoso restrained the governor, the state’s attorney general, and the commissioner for local government and chieftaincy matters from handing Laoye any official documents or issuing certificates of installation until the mandatory injunction already brought before the court had been decided.

The ceremonial installation of the new king or queen, which took place at Abata under the direction of the Areago, High Chief Sobalaje Otolorin, took place while the new ruler was present at the palace on Friday.

The kingmakers claimed that no court order prohibiting them from appointing Laoye as the new Soun of Ogbomoso had been received, nevertheless.
