The Ogun State Governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, on Wednesday met with the Awujale of Ijebuland, Oba Sikiru Adetona, and the Alake of Egbaland, Oba Adedotun Gbadebo, in a bid to broker peace between the two top Yoruba traditional rulers.

The two monarchs have been at loggerheads since Alake was alleged to have listed five top traditional rulers which put Awujale at the rear.

Alake placed Ooni of Ife as number one, followed by Alaafin of Oyo, Oba of Benin, himself as number 4 and Awujale last.

He had based his position on the classification provided by the colonial masters based on their remuneration. But Awujale responded at an event in Lagos where he described Alake as a junior traditional ruler in Yorubaland.

Details of the meeting Amosun had with the two traditional rulers were not clear but it was geared towards bringing about peace between them.
