An Osogbo Chief Magistrates’ Court in Osun on Friday ordered the Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Abdulrasheed Akanbi, to appear in court over an alleged assault.
Ruling in an application, Magistrate Olusegun Ayilara, ordered the police to put the traditional ruler on notice before date would be fixed for hearing of the matter.
Earlier, the prosecution counsel, Soji Oyetayo, approached the court for an order on motion exparte in order to file an application against the Oluwo.
The Oluwo is accused of attacking another monarch, Agbowu of Ogbaagba, Oba Dhikrulahi Akinropo, during a peace meeting on Feb. 14.
The meeting was called to settle a land tussle in Iwo land between the monarchs.
The peace meeting was convened by the Assistant-Inspector General of Police in charge of Zone 11, Bashir Makama, in his Office where the incident allegedly occurred.
