Updated: Fire razes Sunday Igboho’s house in Ibadan, police get report

Published

on

A midnight fire on Tuesday gutted some parts of the house of a popular Yoruba rights activist, Sunday Adeyemo, well known as Sunday Igboho.

The fire reportedly started around 3am in the building located in the Soka area of Ibadan, Oyo State.

The PUNCH reported that the source of the fire was unknown as of the time of filing this report but it was gathered that firefighters from the Oyo State Fire Service arrived at the scene a few hours after to put out the fire.

No statement has been obtained from Igboho on the incident.

Igboho, who is the Akoni Oodua of Yoruba land, last week asked herdsmen in the Ibarapa Local Government Area of Oyo State to leave within seven days.

At the expiration of the ultimatum last week, he and his followers had stormed the Fulani settlement in the ancient town to eject Seriki Fulani, Salihu Abdukadir, and herdsmen accused of perpetrating crime, ranging from kidnappings, killings, rape to invasion of farmlands with their cattle.

Some houses and property in the settlement of the Fulanis were torched but Igboho had distanced himself from the incident, saying aggrieved youths and residents of the town were responsible for the destruction.

Meanwhile, Oyo State Police Command has said it received a report that hoodlums loaded in a bus and taxi came to set ablaze the house of Sunday Igboho.

The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Mr Olugbenga Fadeyi, said this in a statement on Tuesday.

Fadeyi also said the police were told that the arsonists shot in the air several times as they put fire to the house located in the Soka area of Ibadan.

He said the police had begun an investigation into the incident.

The police statement read, “At about 0620hrs of today 26/01/2021, a report was received at the Santo Police Station that some unidentified hoodlums came to Sunday Igboho’s house in the Soka area of Ibadan in a Hummer bus and Micra (taxi) firing sporadically, and set the house ablaze.

“The mini sitting room got burnt in the process while the value of other properties is yet to be estimated.

“Immediately the DPO Sanyo got wind of the incident, he contacted fire service while he also went to the scene for on the spot assessment.

“The fire was eventually put out. An investigation has commenced into the incident while the police are on the trail of the hoodlums.”

    Hi there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re
    using? I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m having a tough time making
    a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs
    and I’m looking for something completely unique.

    P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!

    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe
    you could a little more in the way of content so
    people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

Sexual assault: Baba Ijesha granted N500,000 bail

Published

on

A Chief Magistrate, Oluwatoyin Oghre, on Monday granted a Nollywood actor, Olanrewaju James aka Baba Ijesha, bail.
in the sum of N500,000.
His lawyer, Adesina Ogunlana, confirmed this on Monday, saying, “He has been granted bail about one hour ago. We are working to perfect the bail. He was granted bail on health grounds.
“He has not been released. He will be released after his bail conditions have been met.”
Baba Ijesha was arrested on April 22, for allegedly sexually molesting a minor and remained in police detention due to the ongoing strike embarked on by the Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria.
Lagos State Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Mr. Moyosore Onigbanjo, SAN, had on May 4, noted that after due consideration of the case file forwarded to the Directorate of Public Prosecution by the police on April 30, 2021, a prima facie case was established against Baba Ijesha.
Onigbanjo stated that Baba Ijesha would be charged with sexual assault and defilement under the provisions of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.
The AG also hinted that the suspect would be charged under Section 135, with indecent treatment of a child punishable by seven years imprisonment; Section 137, defilement of a child, punishable by life imprisonment; Section 261, sexual assault by penetration punishable by life imprisonment; Section 262, attempted sexual assault by penetration, punishable by 14 years imprisonment and Section 263, sexual assault punishable by three years’ imprisonment.
