Since the demise of Oba Idowu Abiodun, the former Oniru of Iru land who joined his ancestors at the age of 82, sometimes in 2019, there have been a need for a new Oniru to come on the throne. Iru is an upscale traditional community in Lagos State (South West Nigeria).
On June 7, the Lagos State Government enthroned one Mr. Gbolahan Lawal, a former Chief of Staff to former Governor Bola Ahmed Tinubu and former Commissioner under both Governor Babatunde Raji Fashola and Governor Akinwunmi Ambode.

Some alleged that the new Oniru is only maternally connected to the royal house as his paternal lineage is with Ojora family of Lagos and therefore has no right to be installed as a Oniru.
Other allegations are that the new Oniru is arrogating some rites to himself, and trying to take over the some private investments made by the family of the late Oniru and the entire Oniru family.

They urged the new Oba to derive his power from the larger Oniru royal family instead of trying to take a solo act of lording it over all “It is unlawful, uncustomary and illegal for new Oba to be challenging the acts of his predecessors from which we derive our proprietary rights. His predecessors acted pursuant to the authority of the family as a whole”. the group noted
