There is a raging crisis brewing in Makun village in Ogun State as Oba Adewale Adeniji, the Oniranike Of Iranike is being allegedly accused of using thugs to terrorize the people Of Ososa, Alaun, Simawa,Odofin Oke rala and about nine villages and towns.
Information available to us revealed that on the 9th Of March, 2020 the king came with land grabbers who were armed to the teeth and they chased people away from their lands causing mayhem as several people sustain injuries while running for safety and two people allegedly missing.
Sadly, the unfortunate incident was enacted again on Wednesday, March 11th, 2020 when the Oba led the thugs again to unleash another terror on the residents.
Checks by us revealed that the Unfortunate incident might not be unconnected to the fact that the Oba was accused of trying to take over the 4,400 acres of land which is about 26,400 plots of land belonging to 9 villages.
Our source went to his palace to confirm the incident but he was told that oba Adewale was not around and he put a call through, he said that “I don’t have anything to discuss with journalist because I have judgement”
This move was rejected by the Traditional leaders of the other villagers. In a chat with Oba Ewusi Of Makun Sagamu In Ogun State, he condemned Oba Adewale’s forceful attempt to take over the lands belonging to the villages and the ensuing fracas which has disrupted the peace of the villages . He stressed that this Oba is found of forcefully taking over lands, he tried it beside my father’s farm and he was resisted and if he’s not call to order, this would result to war.
Some of the residents claimed they have been living in fear over his continuous attack on their lands and that all attempt to bring him to order has proved abortive as he claimed to be too connected to be checkmate by anybody.
“Please save our soul! We implore Governor Prince Dapo Abiodun, Inspector General Of Police, DG Of DSS, Remo traditional council and other security agencies to please intervene and help avert the looming war being orchestrated by Oba Adewale Adeniji, the Oniranike Of Iranike. If any bad things happen to us while trying to secure our fathers land , the police should hold him responsible”.
We reliably gathered that Oba Adewale who is from Ofin claimed that he got a judgment from the court when he sued two faceless individuals that are unknown to the family not the Baale’s and CDA officials in the community .
“The crooked judgement he got against two faceless individuals who are not part of our family nor have any bearing in the community or cda can’t be imposed on any of our land. How can one oba Adewale Adeniji go through the back door that he owned entire 9 villages where his domain is never known to the community?
He has disrupted our business actively, forcing our people on self exile because of the threat of the land grabbers”
We have these poser questions to the Oniranike.
1. Did you sue the 9 villages to get the judgements?
2. Why are you laying claim to Makun land?
3. You are from Ofin so who are you related with in makun that will allot 26,400 plots of land to you?
4. Why did you bring land grabbers to Oke rala ,alaun village,ososa ,simawa ,odofin oke rala,arogun Okerala ,odumeru villa Okerala ,ayetoro,ewu losi, kanuyi village? As a result two people were missing
5. Nigerian and authorities should help us ask oba Adewale Adeniji to mention his village where he is from above listed villages and towns?
“Of a truth, this act of his can cause war between ofin and makun if this oba iranike did not call to order” , says our source.
