The Oyo State High Court sitting in Ogbomoso has sacked Oba Ghandi Olaoye as the new Soun of Ogbomoso.
The court ordered the Oyo State Government to conduct a fresh selection process for the next Soun.
This followed a suit filed by one of the contestants, Kabir Laoye.
Laoye had argued in his suit that Olaoye was not eligible to be appointed as Soun and that his appointment was, therefore, illegal.
The court agreed with Laoye’s argument and ruled that Olaoye’s appointment was null and void.
The court also ordered the government not to appoint anyone to the position until after its judgement.

In other news, The government of Lagos State has denied the report making the rounds on social media that the state governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, had directed the officials of the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority to stop arresting erring motorists.
In the flier that went viral on social media platforms on Wednesday, Sanwo-Olu was reported to have warned the LASTMA officials to cede the duty of arresting motorists to appropriate authorities, adding that they should concentrate on managing traffic in the state.
The flier read, “…Henceforth, no LASTMA officials should arrest any commercial or private motorist. The duty of LASTMA is to manage traffic and not to arrest anyone. “I have heard a lot of complaints, and any official that violates the rule of his work will be severely dealt with. “If at any time LASTMA officials make an attempt to arrest you or forcefully enter your car.
Don’t argue with them, just allow them to enter and call these numbers: 08129928600 and 08129928550.” Meanwhile, in a terse message sent to the newsmen, the Senior Special Assistant on New Media to the governor, Jubril Gawat, disowned the report, tagging it as ‘fake news’.
