Release our prophet, Ondo community urges police, government
Residents of Ayetoro community in Ilaje Local Government Area of Ondo State have urged the state government and the state police command to set an commission of enquiry into the protracted kingship crises rocking the community.
The Chairman, Ayetoro Youth Council, Mr. Ajinde Iretolu, in a statement made available to journalists in Akure yesterday, lamented that some influential people in government are using paraphernalia of public office to intimidate the people.
Iretolu demanded the unconditional of release their prophet, Oluwambe Ojagbohunmi, and some of their leaders, revealing that they were being apprehended to oppress and gag the people of the community.
He noted that four members of the community were wrongfully arrested by the police in connection to the attack launched on members of the community by hoodlums allegedly invited by the embattled Ogeleyinbo of Ayetoro community, Micah Ajijo.
Iretolu decried the detention of Ojagbohunmi, who is the Alakoso of the community, the Baba Ijo of Holy Apostles Church, Pa. Lawrence Lemamu; the community PRO, Mr. Akinluwa Victor and Mrs. Alabeni Bosede.
According to him, the community has been plunged into crisis by some unscrupulous indigenes of the community, who think they can impose their whims and caprices of the people for selfish interests.
The youth leader claimed that the last fracas was caused by the thugs, 20 in number, whom Ajijo invited from Lagos State and Igbokoda, the headquarters of the LGA, injuring over 30 people.
