Traditional ruler under fire in Ogun over threat to life


Ogun Assembly has summoned the Oniraniken of Iranike (Elewu Oku), Oba Adewale Adeniji, to appear before it on Wednesday, 23rd of January, 2021 in connection with alleged threat to life and   invasion of Olumeru Adeyemi Sodiya Family land, Idarika Kanuyi Village, Sagamu. 

The Assembly warned that it may invoke section 129 of the 1999 Federal Republic of Nigeria's Constitution (As Amended) to effect Oba Adewale's appearance should the monarch failed to honour the invite. 

It rued that similar invites had been extended to Oniraniken twice in respect of the same issue but he failed to honour any of them. 

The Speaker of the Ogun State  House of Assembly, Kunle  Oluomo, who made this known, said the third invitate extended to the monarch became imperative owing to failure to honour previous ones. 

The Daily Crucible recalls that the state lawmakers through the Committee on Lands and Housing led by Hon. Damilola Soneye  had earlier summoned the monarch to explain allegations of an alleged threat to life and invasion of Olumeru Adeyemi Sodiya Family land, Idarika Kanuyi Village through Agerige Village by Okerala farmland in Sagamu.

The allegation was levelled against him. 

Soneye and other lawmakers had earlier engaged concerned members of the community on their petition against the monarch who was expected to appear before the lawmakers today (Thursday), having directed him to produce all necessary documents including land title documents in his custody in relation to the landed property allegedly acquired forcefully through a court judgment.
