The Onibeju of Ibeju, Ibeju Local Government Area of Lagos State, Oba Rafiu Salami, has initiated a peace meeting to settle the dispute which has divided the Ibeju Lekki council.

At the gathering, chaired by Oba Salami, which had in attendance Oba Hamzat Onimedu of Orimedu and Oba Onise Ogbengbelekun of Ise, the allegation by Oba Tajudeen Elemoro, that Princess Toyin Eleku was parading herself as the Queen in the council, was discussed.

Princess Eleku, at the meeting, said she will never disobey the traditional leaders in Ibeju and Yorubaland, pointing out that though she was not a traditional queen, she was one in Obatala Kingdom.
She said it was confered on her in Ile-Ife by the Oni of Ife, following her contribution to the Obatala in Ibeju and Lagos State.

She denied the allegation by Oba Elemoron and called on the state government to checkmate any Oba  that has become a land-grabber in the state in order not to cause crisis.
She commended the peace meeting called by the three most powerful Obas in Ibeju council and thanked them for given her fair hearing.
