Six In Police Net For Causing Mayhem In Ikenne

Share This

Six suspects have been arrested for unleashing terror in Ikenne Remo area of Ogun State following a protracted Obaship tussle in the town which is presently a subject  of litigation in court.

Crisis broke out in the town on Friday, March 5, 2021,  following the decision of the reigning Oba of the town, Oba Onakade, to celebrate a traditional festival known as "Jabajaba",  towards which a town crier was sent round the community for the preparatory rites.
This did  not go down well with the opposing side who allegedly attacked the town crier and seized the gong. They also accused  the traditional ruler of trying to forcefully fence off a piece of land where traditional rites are  performed in the town. 

This led to a fracas between the two parties, following which the two sides suffered some injuries and some homes damaged. 

Policemen led by the Area Commander Sagamu were quickly deployed to the area and the situation was brought under control.

Today, March 6, 2021, the Commissioner of Police Ogun State, CP Edward Awolowo Ajogun  moved to the town for an on- the-spot assessment and peace talk. The CP who met separately with the two opposing sides, warned them to eschew violence and follow due process of the law to resolve their differences.

While the CP and his entourage were still on the peace mission within the town, information was received that some people suspected to be hired thugs and Agbekoyas, popular Yoruba hunters'  group, were shooting sporadically in retaliation against their properties allegedly damaged and in the process, injured about four people. 

The CP there and then ordered that they should be chased and brought to book.
Six amongst them, namely: Olasunkanmi Enigbokan, Oluwashina Kafisanwo, Olusegun Odukoya, Lawal Adebayo, Suraju Animashun and Qudus Mabadeje were arrested with dangerous weapons and assorted charms and have confessed to the offence.

Meanwhile, the injured persons have been taken to the hospital and are  responding positively to treatment.
It is pertinent to note that no death is recorded contrary to rumour being peddled around. 

The CP has ordered the immediate transfer of the suspects to the state criminal investigation and intelligence department for discreet investigation and prosecution. He  has further warned that anybody caught with offensive weapons or attempting to harm any person or destroy any property will be dealt with decisively.

However, peace is gradually returning to the town as more policemen have been deployed to beef up security in the town.
