The  Ogun State government has placed embargo on further installation of baales in the four Traditional Councils in the State.

The state, according to Ojuko,  also barred the Ogbonis and Osugbos from further interference in the process and selection of baales in the state,  unless officially requested to do so by the authorities.
The Commissioner enjoined all the Four Traditional Councils to comply with the directive, stating that his ministry would no longer give approval for the  installation of baales until further notice‎.
