Traditional rulers involved in public brawl remain suspended- Amosun

A preliminary report indicted the two men of fighting in public.

The Ogun State Governor, Ibikunle Amosun, has said that the two traditional rulers who fought in public, Fatai Akamo (the Olu of Itori) and Adisa Akinremi (the Baale of Lapeleke), remain suspended from office.

Mr. Amosun made the declaration this weekend in Abeokuta during a chat with reporters.

He said the fate of the royal fathers will be determined by the outcome and recommendation of the panel set up to investigate the ugly development.

The two monarchs were alleged to have openly engaged in exchange of blows over a power tussle on traditional issues.

The governor said that the preliminary investigation, which led to their suspension, revealed that they fought in public, a situation he described as very embarrassing.

Meanwhile, government sources have told PREMIUM TIMES that the troubled traditional rulers are making frantic efforts to ensure that they are not disgraced out of office.
