Oyo Monarch, 14 Others Remanded over Alleged Land Grabbing
A traditional ruler in Oyo State, the Oloko of Oko, Oba Solomon Akinola, and 14 others have been remanded in Abolongo Custodial Centre over alleged land grabbing offenses.
They were remanded by an Oyo State High Court sitting in Ogbomoso on Wednesday for alleged continuous violent attacks, attempted murder, and other land grabbing related activities.
Justice K.A. Adedokun gave the order when the state counsel, I. O. Abdulazeez, informed the court that the complainant, Dr Isaac Abiodun, had been attacked again by the defendants at Aagba village.
Those remanded by the court apart from Oba Akinola include Chief Sunday Aderinto, Chief Jimoh Asimiyu, Timothy Aderinto, Matthew Akintaro, Rafiu Ganiu, and Adejare Adeleru.
Others are Samson Ogunmola, Zachiaus Adeleru, Kamorudeen Ajibade, Raji Rasaq, Mutiu Arowosaye, Oyeyemi Oyelekan, Olusegun Oyelekan, and Sheriff Adio.
Justice Adedokun, while speaking, frowned at the latest violent attack on Abiodun.
The judge ordered the remand of the defendants and adjourned the suit until November 27 for a bail application hearing.
