The Conference of Iyalojas in Oyo State has dissociated itself from the activities of one Princess Folasade Nurudeen aka Abeo Osa and warned her from parading herself as their leader Oyo State.
Speaking on behalf of the Conference in Ibadan on Friday after the monthly meeting of the Iyaloja-Generals from 33 Local Government Councils and 7 geo-political zones in Oyo State, Alhaja Nimota Wahaab, Iyaloja-General of Oke Ogun described Princess Folasade Nurudeen as an impostor that can be described as ‘monkey that sneaked into rams pen’.
In a release signed on behalf of the conference by Alhaja Nimota Wahaab and made available to journalists on Friday, the Iyalojas in Oyo State jointly warned Princess Folasade to stop interfering with the activities and matters relating to traders in Oyo State to avoid being declared an impersonator and subsequently charge to court.
The release stated, that “the Conference of Iyalojas in Oyo State for the umpteenth time dissociate from all messages, release, broadcast, action, and decision of one Princess Folasade Nurudeen, popularly called Abeo Osa, who self-christened herself as Iyaloja-General of Oyo State.
“We are redeclaring to the public, government, and corporate organisations that Alhaja Saratu Aduke Konibaje remains Iyaloja-General of Oyo State in accordance with the 2021 pronouncement of the Coalition of Traders, Artisans, Market Men and Women in Oyo State after the ratification of the decision made by the conference of Iyalojas in Oyo State.
“Should there be any evidence to support her claim we challenge Abeo Osa to present such document to the public, otherwise she should steer clear of traders and market issues in Oyo State.
“We also advise the media houses, bloggers and presenters to stop addressing her as Iyaloja-General of Oyo State; as we are prepared to join any organisation or body that goes contrary to the above information in any suit filed against her.
“It is very easy to identify a monkey that sneaked into rams’ pen because they don’t fall into the same class, they exhibit different behaviours. Abeo Osa has no relationship with us, she was deceived by conspirators and saboteurs who promised to lobby and manipulate over two million self-made men and women in our various markets to get her installed,” the statement emphasised.
