OGUN State government has suspended the Olu of Itori, Oba Fatai Akorede Akamo and the Baale of Lapeleke, Chief Adisa Akinremi, till further notice.

The government, in a statement aired on the state brocasting television (OGTV), monitored by Ogun Today, described the action of the traditional rulers as shameful.

“The traditional rulers have been suspended pending the investigation of the public show of shame, an act unbecoming of the traditional institutions.”

The traditional rulers were, however, quizzed by the state police command on Thursday.

Chief Akinremi, according to information at our disposal, was said to have approached the divisional police headquarters in the area to lodge a complaint that Oba Akamo had allegedly disrupted the festival.

Oba Akamo was said to have allegedly led a group of suspected thugs armed with guns and cutlasses to the village to disrupt the celebration.

This development, according to the source, led to stampede, as indigenes and visitors to the community scampered for safety, as a result of alleged sporadic shootings.

The Olu of Itori, on the invitation of the divisional police officer (names witheld), became furious in the cause of explanation to the police and was said to have slapped Akinremi, who  reportedly did not hesitate to do same.

The Alake and paramount ruler of Egbaland, Oba Adedotun Gbadebo and the Olowu of Owu, Oba Adegboyega Dosun-mu, had earlier waded into the face-off between the traditional rulers.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Muyiwa Adejobi, confirmed that the traditional rulers were still  being interrogated by the command.
