A civil war is reportedly brewing within the Oniru monarchy as the new Oniru of Iruland, Oba Gbolahan Lawal, has asked all banks housing funds belonging to the family to immediately place a ‘Post No Debit’ order on all the accounts of the family.

Punch Newspaper reports that the warning was directed to First Bank of Nigeria, Guaranty Trust Bank, Sterling Bank, Zenith Bank, and Standard Chartered Bank.

The new monarch also called on all tenants and lessees to stop transacting with any individual.

“This is to notify the general public and in particular the lessees, tenants, occupiers, on Oniru family properties and bankers to Oniru chieftaincy family that after the demise of the immediate past Oniru on September 18, 2019, a new Oniru of Iru land in the person of HRM Oba Abdul Wasiu Omogbolahan Lawal was installed and given the staff of office and instrument of appointment ‘by his Excellency Mr Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu the Governor of Lagos State on Sunday, June 7, 2020.
