Shocking! Subjects Chase Traditional Ruler, His Family Out Of Town (Full Details)
A strange event took place in Ilogbo-Ekiti, in the Ido/Osi Local Government Area of Ekiti as the traditional ruler and his family were chased out of the town by his subjects.
Punch Metro reports that the traditional ruler, Oba Edward Ajayi was chased out of his town with the members of his family following an allegation that his son was involved in an attack on the residents of the town.
According to reports, Adeleye who is one of the sons of the monarch led some cult members to attack the residents of the town leading to the death of one Bolu.
Residents of the town allegedly blamed the monarch for not curbing his son and this led to his expulsion from the town with members of his family.
A resident of the town who spoke anonymously said:
“The prince and his group has been terrorising our community with the shield and protection of the palace.
The people were forced to violence because of the failure of the monarch to caution his child and his group. The death of Bolu started the riot.
Some sacred trees usually felled when a king dies have since been cut down while the palace and the monarch’s cars were vandalised.
Seven persons, including the oba’s son have been arrested in connection with the incident, while the body of the boy killed has been deposited in a mortuary.”
However, the Police Public Relations Officer, Mr Caleb Ikechukwu confirmed that some suspects have been arrested including the son of the monarch and he further mentioned that investigation is still ongoing.
