A truce that will facilitate the smooth coronation of Oba Owolabi Olakulehin as the 43rd Olubadan of Ibadanland has been reached between the Otun Olubadan, High Chief Rasheed Ladoja and members of the Olubadan-in-Council.

This emerged on Tuesday as Mr Ladoja directed his lawyers to withdraw the suit filed against the Olubadan-in-Council in court to clear the coast for the enthronement of Oba Olakulehin.
