A baale is the traditional custodian of a community saddle with conflict resolutions, land matters,cultural, promoting peace and harmony amongst its subjects.
Also, responsible for approving and turbaning a worthy residents, deserving chieftaincy tittle and holding periodic council of Chiefs meeting for the growth and development of the community .
Chief Muikala Oseni the purported crowned Baale of degi village called Anthony Village was elected and crowned in the 90’s at a ceremony that took place in the Anthony Village recreation centre.
Aftermath of his installation,his staff of office was allegedly withheld by Otunba Bushira Alebiosu for some reasons yet to be verified. This act reported prevented him from getting his entitlement for several year’s as claimed.
Another unconfirmed reports has it that few year’s back that Hon. Bayo osinowo , the lawmaker representing kosofe constituency l, was the one who facilitated the return of his staff of office and other allowances.
But, Irrespective of the different narratives it never disturbs the baale from selling , reselling, ratifying or asking those on least to pay or quit their land’s. Doing this and peoples compliance proved he was truly the certify baale of the community in charge.
The case between Adams family under the baaleship of Anthony village led by Chief Mukaila Oseni Vs Mudi of Africa, a international fashion brand, in an affividat sworn by their legal consultant last year also pointed to their sizeable owner of some hectares of land purchased from the original landowner who are the grandfather? and father of the Oloriebi prince habeeb kolawole alashe, the Oba elect as gathered.

The publication by PM news dated August 16, 2012 was captioned”Warring Parties Restrained Over Disputed Land” narrated the claims.
However, some recent developments within the community whereby a stakeholder and security meeting are organised the baale nor his chiefs in council honour the invitations.
Reports has it that several security meeting called by the DPOs or the cdas was not honoured . Whereas, His counterpart, the baale of mende comes with all his chiefs in council to fully represent her community.
This irked the residents of Anthony Village to ask if truly have a baale or traditional council of Chiefs in place.
Further Investigations gathered revealed that during his coronation several chiefs was also turbaned but no effective traditional council of Chiefs no periodic meeting has everly took place.
Which now repeat the FAQs:
1.Is otunba Bush still holding his staff of office
2.Does Hon. Bayo Osinowo truly return his staff of office.
3. Does Anthony Village truly have a efficient baale and council of Chiefs?
4. Is baale roles just limited to land selling, lease ratification and developmental fees?
5. If yes. Why then the baale is always hiding or running away from his subject’s on important occasions where his father role are expected?
