Unknown Gunmen Invade Palace in Ogun, Abduct Guard

Fear gripped residents of Agbegise in Ifo local government area of Ogun State following the abduction of one Adeola Oye, a domestic staff of Olu of Agbegise Oba Ikudaisi Joseph Olusina (Ilufemiloye 1).

The incident occurred Saturday midnight at the palace and personal Hotel of the monarch as sources said the gunmen claimed to be law enforcement agents.

The fierce-looking gunmen according to sources allegedly bumped into the Palace of Oba Olusina, without a search warrant, saying they were looking for some miscreants who lodged in the hotel.

“In the process, they forcefully gained entrance into the palace, destroyed the gate and search everywhere.

“Not done with that, they also invaded the private hotel owned by the monarch, destroyed the gate and scattered everywhere.

“At the end of their search, they abducted the security guard who is a domestic staff of the monarch,” a source said.

It was gathered that all efforts to trace where the said law enforcement came from were unsuccessful as the police in Ifo and Sango area commands have denied any involvement in the raid.

The royal father, Olu of Agbegise Oba Ikudaisi Joseph Olusina while speaking with our correspondent said the abduction of his staff has left the whole residents of the community in fear as all efforts to identify where the self-acclaimed policemen came from remained unknown.

“We have been to the Sango and Ifo police divisions, and also we had contacted the Ogun state command headquarters of Nigeria Police. They have all feigned ignorance of the raid, now, the question is who ordered the search and where did they take my staff to,” he said.

He called on the Ogun state commissioner of Police, Kenneth Ebrimson to urgently wade into the issue and assist in fishing out the whereabouts of his staff.

All effort made to get in touch with Police Public Relations Officer DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi was proved abortive.
