Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, on Sunday, presented staff of office and instrument of appointment to Oba Abdulwasiu Omogbolahan Lawal, Abisogun II, as the 15th Oniru of Iruland, Eti-Osa Local Government Area of the state.
In attendance at the impressive ceremony were traditional rulers in the state led by Oba of Lagos, Oba Rilwanu Akiolu I and also members of the state Executive Council as well as prominent sons and daughters of Iruland.
Until recently, Lawal was the state Commissioner for Agriculture.
Oba Lawal succeeds late Oba Idowu Abiodun, former Oniru of Iruland, who passed on in 2019 at the age of 82.
Lawal was Aide-De-Camp (ADC) to Governor Bola Tinubu during his tenure in Lagos.
It was gathered that Lawal eventually emerged the preferred choice to occupy the vacant throne which had been a subject of controversy from the Abisogun and Akiogun Ruling Houses in order to break the tie between the two contending candidates.
