BREAKING NEWS!!! OJON OF IJAN AND OBA OF EJIGBO IMPASSE: FSARS ARRESTS ELEJIGBO OF EJIGBO ELECT, PRINCE OLAWALE EDAGBEJA
The men of Federal SARS operatives, Ikeja on Wednesday arrested the Oba elect of Ejigbo, Prince Olawale Edagbeja over the Obaship impasse that has lingered on between him and the Ojan of Ijan and Ejigbo, HRM Oba Moruf Adekunle Adisa Ojoola.
VOA news reliably gathered that Prince Olawale Edagbeja had directed Chief Muri Adeyemi, the Akile Oba of Ojan to vacate his landed property in that he wanted to make use of the property. Meanwhile, Chief Muri had insisted on not vacating the landed property.
VOA news learnt that the Oba elect of Ejigbo had gone to make a formal complaint at the Ejigbo Police Station so as to prevent break down of law and order. The Chief had connived with the men of Federal SARS and the D.P.O of Ejigbo Police station, Bashiru Katangura to arrest Prince Olawale Edagbeja for parading himself as an Oba of Ejigbo, the development that led to the eventual arrest of the Oba elect, our correspondent gathered.
It will be recalled that the Oba elect of Ejigbo had asked the Commissioner for Chieftaincy and Community Affairs in Lagos State, Muslim Folami to recognize him as the Oba of Ejigbo following a Supreme court judgement which stated that “Ejigbo people owns Ijan, there is a land called Ijan, the Chief of the place is Ojan. Ejigbo people, and not Lagos Island caps Ojan of Ijan. The said ruling defeated Sule Agoro, the then Ojan of Ijan. Moreso, that the territory of the Ojan of Ijan is limited to only Ijan which Ejigbo people gave them several years ago.
