However, reading the text of address, the ODU National President who was supported by High Chiefs across Oro Kingdom said: “Otun-Oro is one of the nine communities that made up Oro Kingdom but the apparent claim in the publication that eight other towns in Oro Kingdom are the District towns of a so-called Oro was also not touched by the Supreme Court judgment or any other judgment of any Court in Nigeria.”
Balogun also affirmed that the Oloro of Oro Kingdom, Oba Abdulrafiu Ajiboye Oyelaran I remains the paramount ruler of the kingdom adding that he is one of the numerous occupants of the stool of the Oloro of Oro Kingdom in modern time.

“No amount of falsehood can change the truth of the history and custom of Oro Kingdom-the menace of a separatist few notwithstanding. The said publication in its design and timing, amounts to a deliberate act of provocation capable of triggering public disturbances among other criminal offences. We are sure relevant authorities will look into this”, he added.
