History was made yesterday after a new king was installed as the new Oniru of Iru Land in Lagos. Recall that in September 2019, the former King of Oniru, His Royal Majesty, Oba Idowu Abiodun Oniru, passed away after a brief illness at the age of 82.
Under his reign, Iru land, the host of the a highbrow Oniru and Victoria Island, became a mega location with investments and buildings worth hundreds of billions.
Sharing pictures from the coronation ceremony that held yesterday for the new Oniru of Iru on Instagram, H.E Babajide Sanwo-Olu wrote;
“History was made today, as we performed the installation ceremony of the 15th Oniru of Iru land. His Royal Majesty, Oba Abdul-Wasiu Omogbolahan Lawal, Abisogun II.
It is my firm belief that the pedigree of the new monarch, who has in his possession an exceptional legacy that cannot be erased from the history of public service in Lagos, having performed outstandingly as Commissioner in the Ministries of Agriculture, and Housing lays credence to the fact that he will bring further positive transformation to the kingdom.
Therefore, it is certain that the future of Iru Kingdom continues to be bright and promising, and with the ascension of His Royal Majesty, Oba Lawal onto that throne, the journey into that future has begun.
I hereby commend the kingmakers and elders of Iru land, as well as the ruling houses, for the peace and mutual understanding that have characterised the process that led to the installation of the new monarch within a period of less than one year after the demise of the former Oniru.

My administration will continue to accord this part of the state, like all others, the attention it deserves, in terms of infrastructure, economic empowerment, human capital development, and security.
Congratulations once again to His Royal Majesty, Oba Abdul-Wasiu Omogbolahan Lawal. Abisogun II. The Oniru of Iru land.”
