“Each governing house has its own branches, and we have Olori Ebi Eka and Olori Ebi Apapo as our leaders. Branches in a ruling family will present their list of candidates when it is their turn to create the next monarch, and if all the branches agree on one candidate, it is acceptable. In this case, it is the Oniwonlu Ruling House’s turn to produce the following Onibeju.
They presented us with 19 names, and we, the kingmakers, met, completed everything necessary, and transmitted one of the names to the head of the local government for submission to the governor for approval.

Agbabiaka went on to say that the more than 70 communities that make up Ibeju territory had all experienced peace throughout the years and he begged with local leaders to persuade their people not to incite unrest. According to Vanguard.
