July 20, 2017 – Baale Of Shangisha Remanded In Kirikiri Prison For Faking His Own Kidnap

An Ogba Magistrate Court, Ikeja, today remanded the deposed Baale of Shangisha, Chief Mutiu Micheal Ogundare, in Kirikiri Prison, for allegedly faking his kidnap.

The Baale will remain in prison alongside his wife, Abolanle and one Mohammed Opeyemi Babatunde, pending when they perfect their bail conditions.

Ogundare and others were arraigned before Magistrate T. Akanni on a three- count charge of breach of public peace and fake kidnapping.

However, the defendants pleaded not guilty to the charges preferred against them.

Counsel to the defendants, Mr. Glory Odimayo, filed a bail application for his clients.

Odimayo argued that the defendants are prominent members of the Shangisha community and would not jump bail.

“The third defendant, before this incident, was the reigning Baale while the second defendant is his wife and as such would not jump bail,” he said.

He assured the court that they would not use their position to tamper with evidence already before the court.

The prosecutor, Mr. Peter Okerinmodun, opposed the application, saying the defendants are popular members of the community and would use such relationship to tamper with evidence.

Okerinmodun told the court if granted bail, their presence in the community would cause breakdown of law and order.

He added that the accused would use their position to influence witnesses.

Magistrate Akanni granted the defendants bail in the sum of N2 million each and two sureties in like sum.

She said the sureties must include a traditional ruler, person with registered property in Lagos and a grade level 17 officer in the state public service.

She adjourned the matter till August 28 for hearing. [NAN]

  1. HOW CAN SUCH JERK BE A TRAD RULER.SUCH INSTTUTION SHOULD SCREEN CANDIDATES PRIOR TO INSTALLATION OR IS THAT THRONE HEREDITORY?SPITS

  2. This the kind of traditional chief who can collaborate with the dreaded cult group called Badoo to cause a mayhem in the society. This guy can connive with money ritual people by using people his own community for money ritual. This traditional ruler can work with Armed Robbers to cause an uproar in his community and so on and so forth. Fellow Nigerians, I have said it thousands times that the secret of our security stability lies within our leaders.
