“ The boys could not be stopped as some of them were armed with offensive weapon, such as sledge hammers,  saw machetes e.t.c. But they were quick to disclosed that they were sent to carry out the dastardly  and destructive felonious exercise by the respondent of the petition.”

Prince Adesina, the first son of the late monarch have reported the case to the Divisional Police Officer  in charge of Orile Igbon Division  who promised to mobilize his men to the site but failed to fulfill his promise to stop them.

The petition also added that “on 23rd May, the complainant commissioned Mr Ayefele to go and inspect the level of damages  done to the building and report the case at the police station for necessary action, but surprisingly, Mr Ayefele was arrested  and detained for several hours  and the DPO later advised that the complainant take the matter to court” .

The petition reads further, “Sir , we also considered  it apt to  invite your attention to the fact that this is not the first time the respondents have forcefully entered  into and damaged most of the legacies left behind by the late Olugbon for his family. However, it appear  the respondents have become rather cosy with the police officer in Orile Igbon because they continue to carry out their criminal act and get away with them scot –free.

“Our client is at the moment fed up and frustrated and they have concluded plans  to take up cudgel to defend  the estate of their patriarch if the police continue to fail to guarantee them requisite protection under the law. Our client is fed up with the reckless abandonment of security protection and the maintenance of law and Order at Orile Igbon particularly as it affect their right and  right and plights”.
