The people of Imasayi in Yewa South Local Government Area of Ogun State have rejected Oba Kuoye Olalekan Adeleke as their traditional ruler. They claimed that he is neither from the town nor does he belong to the two ruling families.
Moreover, Balogun of Imasayi identified as Chief Timothy Rotimi Akinyele declared that Olalekan was only made a chief by their late king and that he had no right whatsoever to the throne. He added that only the Oyesoku and Aribioyo family were entitled to the throne. He also said that the community had an age long custom and tradition that should be followed to make anyone king and that the government shouldn't have made a total stranger an Oba.
On the other hand, Oba Kuoye defended his kingship by saying, "I am not only a son of the soil, I belong to the Oyesoku family because my family is among the eleven families that make it up. You can check the Appendages of Oyesoku family which is a book written by the late king in 1989 to confirm my stance."
