How DSS Barred Alaafin of Oyo, Olubadan From Commissioning of Oyo Stadium

Operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS), on Wednesday evening, stopped Oba Lamidi Adeyemi, Alaafin of Oyo, and Oba Saliu Adetunji, the Olubadan of Ibadanland, from the commissioning of the remodeled Lekan Salami Adamasingba Stadium, Ibadan.

Dignitaries within and outside the country witnessed the commissioning of the stadium rehabilitated by the administration of Governor Seyi Makinde.

Accompanied by their aides, the monarchs went to the stadium but the security operatives were said to have given them the condition that they would not go in with all those who were with them.

After waiting for about 30minutes at the entrance, they were said to have left in anger.

Speaking with journalists after leaving the Stadium, the Assistant Director of Media and Communications to Olubadan, Yanju Adegboyega, said it was very annoying for security operatives to stop the monarchs at the first instance.

“Olubadan, Alaaafin of Oyo and Aseyin of Iseyin were at the entrance to access the stadium but over zealous security officers stopped them,” he said.

According to him, the security operatives stopped them from entering the stadium despite the fact that the monarchs showed them their Very Important Personality (VIP) Invitation Cards.

He added, “We were prevented from entering the stadium. The DSS and bouncers did not allow us to enter.

“They said they can only allow the monarchs to enter if they can only go in with just one aide. Olubadan had no option but to leave, Aseyin also followed us.

“Quote me, I am the assistant Director of Media.”

The DSS is yet to react to the development.
