Court Orders Oluwo To Appear In Person And Face Assault Charges

An Osogbo Magistrates’ Court on Friday ordered the  Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Abdulrasheed Akanbi, to appear in person for the hearing of a matter bordering on allegations of assault filed against him by  the Agbowu of Ogbaagba, Oba Dirkrullahi Akinropo.
Oba Akinropo  filed a suit accusing  Oba Akanbi of  assaulting at a peace meeting in the office of   the Assistant Inspector- General of Police, Zone XI, on  February 14.

Through his counsel, Soji Oyetola, Oba Akinropo on March 6 sought and got relief of the court to file an application to compel  the Oluwo to appear in person for trial.

Addressing the court when the matter came up on Friday, Oyetayo urged the court to issue a bench warrant for  the Oluwo’s arrest  over his failure to appear before  the court.

Oyetayo  said  the defendant was duly served with the court process and should have appeared in person.

But in  a counter-argument,  lawyer for the Oluwo, Tiamiyu Adegboyega, said the application was served on the office of  his  client  around   12.45pm on March 18.

He claimed that the monarch had not been informed and served the process personally.

He urged the court to discountenance the application for bench warrant for the  Oluwo’s arrest, saying it had no basis in law.

Ruling on the application, Magistrate Olusegun Ayilara ruled that Oba Akanbi should appear before the court in person on April 3 when the matter would come up again.

According to him, the matter being a quasi- criminal matter, will require the Oluwo’s presence in court and directed that hearing notice should be pasted on the walls of  his residence.

He added that hearing notice should also be forwarded to Oba Akanbi’s verifiable phone number.
