Ogun probes Ado-Odo crisis

23 April 2013, 11:38

Abeokuta - The Ogun government on Monday set up a Judicial Commission of Enquiry to investigate the cause of the recent crisis in Ado-Odo community.

This was  contained in a statement issued in Abeokuta on Monday by Taiwo Adeoluwa, the Secretary to the State Government.

It said the five-man commission would be headed by Justice Elizabeth Osinuga while Mr Johnson Ojo would serve as the Secretary.

``The panel is to identify individuals, groups of persons and institutions directly or indirectly responsible for the unrest and ascertain the extent of loss of lives and damage to property during the crisis.

``The panel is also to recommend ways of avoiding a re-occurrence of such unrest, “ the statement said.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) recalls that some youths in the town had attacked the palace of Oba Lateef Akanni, the Olofin of  Ado-Odo,  on April 15.

The action led to a reprisal attack by supporters of the monarch which later resulted in violence in various parts of the town.

Property worth millions of naira including the palace of the Olofin,  were destroyed while several people sustained various degrees of injuries.
