Ooni Suspends Oduduwa University Founder, Ramon Adedoyin As Maye Of Ife
The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi (Ojaja II) has suspended the embattled founder of Oduduwa University Dr. Ramon Adedoyin, as the Maye of Ile-Ife.
Adedoyin has been embroiled in the suspicious death of a master’s degree student of Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile Ife, Osun State, Timothy Adegoke, at his Hilton Hotel and Resort, Ile-Ife.
He has been in police detention since the unfortunate death of Adegoke while his son who is fingered to be part of the murder, is on the run.
This is the second time Adedoyin will be suspended as Maye of Ile-Ife, Nigerian Express reports.
In 2018, he was suspended over a trending Poem, ‘Ewi’ on the Ooni, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi released to defame the stool and character of the frontline monarch.
The address of the Council was read by the Secretary to the Ife Traditional Council, Chief Adetoye Odewole.
He said, “That beyond a reasonable doubt, Chief Ramon Adedoyin and his cohorts like Oba Adeoye Adefarakan have committed offences of defaming the stool and character of the Ooni of Ife, assault and the libellous release of the ewi remain indelible and all these acts are conducts likely to cause a breach of peace.
“That all parties involved in the meeting passed a vote of no confidence on Chief Ramon Adedoyin and Oba Adeoye Adefarakan.
“That the House of Oduduwa henceforth suspends the chieftaincy title of Maye of Ife that was bestowed on Chief Ramon Adedoyin until further notice.
“Chief Ramon Adedoyin should not parade himself as the Maye of Ife until he absolved himself of his disloyalty and betrayal to the stool of Ooni and the House of Oduduwa.”
