One Mr. Mukaila Akinwande has been arrested by the Ogun State Police, Ibara Division on Friday for parading himself as the Oluwo of Ijejaland in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital.
According to the reports, Akinwande was arrested in the early hours of Friday at his house around Ijeja in Abeokuta sequel to the violation of court order issued at Isabo High Court asking him to stop parading himself as the Oluwo of Ijejaland.
Recall that Justice Ogunfowora had earlier ruled on a motion filed by Chief Àrèmú Bangboye, the authentic Oluwo of Ijejaland, who is the complainant seeking an injustice, restraining Mukaila Akinwande from parading himself as the Oluwo of Ijejaland.
It was further gathered that as soon as the court issued the order, Akinwande was said to have removed the Oluwo’s photograph in front of his house, but it was not long before he returned the photographs.
“We have since heard that people have started warning him not to stop using things that could identify him as Oluwo of Ijejaland.
“We also learned that Mukaila’s Red KIA Jeep was attached with a plate number with the Oluwo of Ijejaland inscription”, a source said.
However, things went bad for Mukaila when he was finally picked – up by Police for going against the court order.
He has since been released on administrative bail, with an undertaking that he would desist from parading himself as the Oluwo of Ijejaland until the final court ruling.
