By Jimoh Sulyman
The traditional ruler of Samora in Kwara State, Oba Matthew Idowu Ajiboye, has been brought before Magistrates Court sitting in Ilorin on Wednesday for allegedly attacking a fellow monarch, Oloba of Eju Land, Alhaji Maroof Afolayan Adebayo.
According to the police report obtained by National Pilot, Oba Ajiboye was said to have led some hoodlums to attack the victim in his palace in Irepodun local government area of the State.
The report has it that Oba Ajiboye with five others; Tijani Musibau, Kuburat Sodiku, Afolayan Sukiru, Usman Raufu, Tunde Arinwoye and Saheed Bello, who is now at large, attacked Oloba and his family with dangerous weapons.
It added that Oloba, with his family members were terribly injured during the attack while valuable items including cash both in local and foreign currencies were carted away from the palace.
The prosecutor, Ojo Oluwaseun, informed the court that there was ongoing investigation on the matter and sought for an adjournment in order to conclude the investigation.
Magistrate Abdullahi Badmus, who presided over the matter, however, granted the defendants bail in the sum of N500,000, with two sureties each who must be resident within the court’s jusridiction.
He, therefore, adjourned the matter to August 24, 2022 for hearing.
