Nine Months After, Akeredolu Orders Release Of Detained Monarch



By Niyi Olutunde, Akure

Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu of Ondo state has ordered the unconditional release of Ogeleyinbo of Ayetoro community in Ilaje local government area of the state, Oba Oluwambe Ojagbohunmi (JP), from Olokuta medium prison, Akure, after nine months of unlawful arrest.

It would be recalled that Oba Ojagbohunmi was arrested and remanded in prison since January following the kingship tussle between him and Micah Ajijo in Ayetoro, a community in Ilaje Local Government area before he was released on Thursday.

The monarch alongside the Baba Ijo and the Public Relations Officer of the community, Lawrence Lemamu and Mr. Victor Akinluwa respectively, were moved to Akure by the police and detained nine months ago.

The Supreme Council of Elders and Ayetoro Youth Congress (AYC), expressed gratitude to the governor for his prompt intervention into the matter

Speaking on behalf of the Council and the community, Rev. Apostle Joshua Bankole, declared unflinching support for Akeredolu’s government and his future endeavours politically.

He said” We also seize this medium to tell Mr. Governor that, Ayetoro, being the most populous community in Ilaje area, our people would always be in your support in all your political dealings and we want you to continue the good works you have been doing in Ondo State since assumption of office.”

Bankole hailed the governor for his relentless efforts to curtail the sea incursions and reminded him of the devastation of the sea encroachment which according to him had destroyed several houses and properties.
