The Onibogun of Ibogunland was represented by Chief Musibau Balogun, while the Ifo LocalÂ Government chairman was represented by the councillor representing Ibogun, Mr. GabÂ Adenle.
Speaking at the occasion, the Bobadara of Ibogunland, Otunba Kehinde Adeosun, enjoinedÂ all the community development associations to work in unity and harmony, while promisingÂ to use his position as an estate agent and surveyor to bring rapid development to theÂ area.
While commenting on the hardship the people of Ibogun are going through, the secretary toÂ the Eldersâ€™ Forum, Chief R.O. Adetoyinbo (JP), blamed it on the police, who he accused ofÂ collecting N100 from commercial motorcycle operators popularly called okada riders, atÂ each road block in the area.
