Bode Durojaiye, the Director of Media and Publicity to the Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Olayiwola Adeyemi 111 has confirmed that the monarch was prevented from entering the Salami stadium, Adamasingba Ibadan on Wednesday.

DAILY POST learnt that Alaafin and other monarchs in the state were invited to grace the commissioning of the remodeled stadium on Wednesday.

Our correspondent, however, gathered that the Alaafin was prevented from entering the stadium despite that he was duly invited by the Oyo State Government to witness the commissioning.
It was learnt that the monarch immediately left the venue.

Alaafin’s spokesman, Bode Durojaiye while confirming the development in a short message claimed that he had been briefed that security agents truly prevented the monarch from gaining entry into the venue.
He described the security agents as overzealous.
He said, “My brother I’m so sorry.

“Overzealous security agents prevented the Alaafin.
“I did not go but I have just been briefed.”
DAILY POST had earlier reported that the Olubadan of Ibadanland, Oba Saliu Akanmu Adetunji was also prevented
from gaining entry to the stadium.
Adetunji left the stadium in anger.

Assistant Director, Media and Publicity to the Olubadan, Yanju Adegboyega confirmed the development to DAILY POST.
Adegboyega insisted that the operatives of Department of State Service (DSS) and bouncers prevented the monarch from gaining access to the stadium.

“There is nothing that happened there. We were prevented from entering the stadium.
“The DSS and bouncers did not allow us to enter. Quote me, I am the Assistant Director of Media”.
