Court orders CP to arrest Osun first class monarch

A Chief Magistrate Court sitting in Osogbo, the Osun State capital,  yesterday ordered the State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Fimihan  Adeoye, to arrest the Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Abdulrasheed Akanbi, a first class monarch in the state.

A senior Magistrate, Olusola Aluko on Friday, December 20, 2016 had issued a bench warrant for Oluwo’s arrest. He had  last Wednesday ordered the monarch to appear in court on Friday December, 30, 2016, but the traditional ruler failed to show up, when the case came up for hearing.

Saturday Sun recalls that a case was filed against Oba Akanbi by another traditional ruler in the state, the Oluwo of Iwo-Oke, Oba Kadiri Adeoye. The case is being heard by Magistrate Aluko.
