After the Osun State Government appointed Prince Yinusa Olalekan Akadiri as the Akinrun, he allegedly led other persons to the town to gain access to the palace, which resulted in the renewed Ikirun obaship tussle that was rocking the town. This resulted in the town being shaken to its foundations.
