An angry mob invaded the palace of Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Rasheed Akanbi yesterday and destroyed a section of the palace in an attempt to lynch a suspected female kidnapper caught by some residents of Iwo town.

According to sources, the female kidnapper was caught while making some suspicious calls around the town and some youths who heard her beat her to stupor.

She was later taken to the monarch’s palace by some compassionate youths.

When the monarch interrogated her, he discovered that the woman might be mentally unstable so he called police to pick her up.

Oba Akanbi’s judgement reportedly angered some youths who threw large stones into the palace premises.

Eyewitnesses said vigilant security agents stationed at the palace immediately whisked the monarch away secretly in order to safeguard him from attack.


Our sources said the monarch is at an undisclosed location at the time of this report.
