The angry subjects alleged that a son of the monarch, Adeleye, led some secret cult members to attack residents which led to the death of one Bolu.
They claimed that the king had refused to caution his son despite repeated reports of his son’s criminal activities.
“The people were forced to violence because of the failure of the monarch to caution his child and his group. The death of Bolu started the riot.
“Some sacred trees usually felled when a king dies have since been cut down while the palace and the monarch’s cars were vandalised.
“Seven persons, including the oba’s son have been arrested in connection with the incident, while the body of the boy killed has been deposited in a mortuary.”
The Police Public Relations Officer, Mr Caleb Ikechukwu, confirmed the arrest of some suspects, including the monarch’s son.
He added that the incident was still under investigation. SHARE THIS STORY USING ANY OF THE BUTTON BELOW ⬇ PLACE YOUR TEXT ADVERT BELOW ⬇⬇⬇
