IGP orders probe into threat to life by Lagos Oba


The Inspector General of Police (IGP), Suleiman Abba, has ordered an investigation into a report of alleged threat to life by a royal father in Igbogbo/Bayeku Local Council Development Area, Lagos.
The traditional ruler and his chiefs allegedly threatened the lives of Madam Bola Kalejaiye, Chief Muraina Oduwole, Tabura Oduwole, Suebatu Oduwole and Tunde Folarin Oduwole.
He was said to have engaged the services of about 30 hoodlums who attacked the Ibeshe Community at night, destroyed security gates of houses and attacked the residents with many of them sustaining wounds.
The IGP gave the order following a petition from a Lagos-based lawyer, Barrister Tunji Busari, on behalf of the Oduwole Descendants, complaining about the action of the royal father and his chiefs.
The lawyer alleged that in the ensuing commotion, valuable belongings, estimated at millions of Naira, were destroyed, with over N1million cash lost.
Some members of the Oduwole family, including Adewale Adeyemi, Jamiu Oduwole, Morufu Oduwole, Tunde Folarin-Oduwole, Adebowale Adeniyi and Musibau Sanni, had their houses raided, first, by the palace chiefs and later by a group of hoodlums, led by one Toyin Olusegun a.k.a Danku, Lanre Basanya a.k.a Laredo, Taju Bakare a.k.a Oji and Odunaya a.k.a Papa and were seriously wounded and hospitalised.
Police spokesman for Force Criminal Investigation Department (FCID) Alagbon, Lagos, ASP Archibong, confirmed that a signal was received instructing the FCID to investigate the allegation.
