This is not the best of times for the children, late top Ogbomosho politician, Samuel Ladoke Akintola left behind as they have been taking one another to court over the inheritance 52 years after.
The case in question swung in favour of Ladiran, who was born out of wedlock,and raised secretly by his mother. The court declared that the family must consider him as one of theirs, since it had been proven by six witnesses who were aware that Ladiran is the true son of his late father.
It was learnt that the past Are Ona kakanfo refused Ladiran into the family but Ladiran who is now a court judge took the case to the Oyo state High court,where the case was judged in his favour few weeks back.
Despite that, other children may still appeal the judgement, because they are not satisfied with it, many people feel bad about the conflict amongst Akintola’s children over the
inheritance, 52 years after the demise of their father.
