Oniru calls for investigation into assault in domain, declares the palace will not condone lawlessness

... Suspends officials involved in the fracas



The Oniru of Iruland HRM Oba Abdul Wasiu Omogbolahan Lawal, has been formally notified of the assault incident which took place within the Oniru Estate  neighbourhood, close to Millennium Estate Gates in Lekki area of Lagos, that culminated in an altercation between some officials of Oniru’s Palace and a group led by Prince Tijani Oniru.
According to a statement from the media office of the Oniru of Iruland, after receiving the report of the regrettable incident, HRM Oba Abdul Wasiu Omogbolahan Lawal immediately ordered an investigation into both the incident and the conduct of the palace officials.

The statement continued that “His Majesty has repeatedly stated that he would not tolerate or condone any acts of violence, lawlessness and recourse to self-help, which in anyway could be seen as a provocative affront to the authority of the Oniru and desecration of tradition.”

In the same vein, the Oniru warned Palace officials to remain emotionally stable in the discharge of their duties, even in the face of provocation, as he sees “no reason or excuse for violence in Iru Land.”

As the first move in the right direction, “consequently, Kabiyesi has directed the Palace Administrator to immediately suspend the official involved in the incident pending full investigation.

"His Majesty enjoins all parties to desist from all forms of violence and uphold peace, law and order.
His Royal Majesty restates his commitment to allow the law of the land to take it full course in this incident notwithstanding the palace administrative actions that have been taken so far.

"His Majesty also awaits the outcome of investigation currently being undertaken by the Office of the Police Area Commander, Area J and DPO of the Maroko Area," the statement added.

Report has it that yesterday Sunday afternoon, a team of Palace Officials led by Prince Murisiku Ajasa were allegedly accosted by Prince Tijani Oniru and some other persons. The Palace officials were on routine inspection to supervise the work being done by an Inventory and Enumeration group. In the ensuing heated argument, it was alleged that Prince Tijani Oniru slapped the leader of the Palace officials, who was also alleged to have retaliated. Fortunately, the Police quickly intervened to prevent further escalation.

  1. The Oba's move is in order. I sincerely suggest that the new Oba should carry the Princes along.
