The Olubadan of Ibadan land, Oba Saliu Adetunji has ordered the Sarkin Shasha, Haruna Mai Yasin Katsina to subject himself to the authority and leadership of the Baale of Shasha, Chief Amusa Ajani.
The first-class monarch gave this order during a peace meeting with members of the Hausa/Fulani community over the crisis that engulfed the Shaska foodstuff market in February.
Represented by the Otun Olubadan, High Chief Lekan Balogun, who led other high chiefs at the meeting, the monarch said the structure of traditional leadership in Ibadan is very clear and unambiguous, saying the Baale is the overall leader in every community in Ibadan land.
He urged the Hausa leader to operate under the Baale for smooth administration and structural peace.
Katsina is the Chairman, Arewa Communities in the 17 Southern States of Nigeria.
Oba Adetunji strongly advised the Sarkin should face the reality that irrespective of the honour accorded him, he is under the chieftaincy stool of the community leader of Shasha, Chief Amusa Ajani where he resides.
The monarch berated political leaders for unmerited courtesy accorded the Seriki n’Sasa in the scheme of things in the state, urging all the relevant authorities to know and accept the fact that the community leader is under the Baale of Sasa.
