Group calls for removal of Oyo traditional ruler




Save the Poor and Needy Charity Initiative (SPANCI) has called for the removal of Alamura of Amura in Oriire Local Government in Oyo State, Oba Samuel Olakunle over allegations of land grabbing and other related offences.

SPANCI President, Comrade Yemi Ezekiel Bello, made this appeal in a statement made available to our correspondent recently in Ibadan, the state capital.

Bello in the statement said that Olakunle has been prosecuted by Oyo State Government through the office of the Commissioner for Justice and Attorney General of the the state on four count charges relating to land grabbing, conspiracy and forceful entry.

He added that the state taskforce on Real Property Protection and Anti-land Grabbing Law found him culpable after investigation.

SPANCI President pointed out that it is wrong for the same state that prosecuted him to still honor him and present him with a Staff of Office as an Oba.

Bello, while speaking, further appealed to Makinde to immediately remove Olakunle as Alamura of Amura.

He used the opportunity to appeal to the IGP, AIG Zone 11 and the Oyo Commissioner of Police to caution the men of Owode Area Command to immediately withdraw from the land matters upon which Olakunle was prosecuted.

Bello said, “We want to appeal through this medium to his Excellency, Engineer Seyi Makinde who is known for being a credible and law abiding governor and Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Matters to immediately remove Deacon Olakunle Samuel, the Alamura of Amura land in Ikoyi Ile, Orire Local Government Area, Ogbomoso as Oba for the reasons stated above and more.

“We have written a petition to the honorable Commissioner for Justice and Attorney General Oyo State Ministry of Justice and attached the four counts charge sheet as we have also informed Ogbomoso NBA chairman of the involvement of one lawyer in illegality and disrespect to court”.
