Egbe Atunluse Ile-Ijesa, Haastrup family head to court in property dispute

The decision of an extension of the popular Haastrup family to pull the land of the former Cooperative hall , besides the Haastrup  Compound, behind Adedeji's family house at Odo Oja to Odo Agbede, Atakumosa Market area of Ilesa from the pocession of the Egbe Atunluse Ile-Ijesa has emerged as a central issue in an intensifying dispute between the two sides and has taken a new dimension as the dispute has moved to the Ilesa Magistrate Court 2.

The dispute started when the egbe embarked on demolition of its property on the disputed land to pave the way for building of a modern shopping complex with a view to boosting the economy of Ijesaland.

Afterwards, a female member of Haastrup family, (name withheld) confronted the society, claiming that the structure belongs to his late father, one Prince Adeyoju Haastrup.

All efforts of the Egbe Atunluse to convince her that the property is Egbe's proved abortive.

The Haastrup family has instituted a criminal case against one Adedeji linked to the Egbe Atunluse Ile Ijesa of unlawfully damaging their father's property.

Insiders from the 100-year-old Egbe Atunluse that recently secured a 400 hectares of land for the establishment of a university by the Deeper Christian Life Ministry in Ilesa, Osun State are claiming that the Egbe built the house on the land in dispute since 1961.

Intrestingly, Haastrup Ajimoko family, being a reputable royal family in Ijesaland also has some family members in Egbe Atunluse Ile-Ijesa.

The society, founded in 1922, established the Ilesa Grammar School in 1934 and Obokun High School in 1954, both in Ilesa.
