DSS AND IGP TACTICAL SQUAD INCESSANT RAID ON OGIENENI: President Buhari and Governor Obaseki Must Call Them To Order
In sane and developed climes, when revered institutions such as the traditional institutions are left to be constantly desecrated, then anarchy looms in the air. One expects such institutions to be accorded the needed regards as they serve as the custodians of the peoples’ cultural heritage. International best practices hold that, upon reports against certain personalities such as a traditional ruler, invitation ought to be served that person and not to invade his palace in a commando way as kidnappers would do in an attempt to rubbish such an individual.
This whole drama started when Alhaji Kadiri Imonikhe Omogbai 1V, the Ogieneni of Uzairue Kingdom installed a successor to the late King of Ayua Community in Etsako West local government of Edo State. Part of the community rejected the King’s choice, particularly the Imodagbe Family. They went ahead to create their own sign post, demarcating a portion of the community as a new community, a decision the Ogieneni was not comfortable with. He however ordered the Uzairue Vigilante Group to uproot the sign post. It was at this juncture the wife of Kogi State governor Mrs Rasheedat Yahaya bello came in and started using political power and state machinery to intimidate His Royal Highness.
Not still satisfied, she involved the Department of State Security, DSS to clampdown on Ogieneni and Jattu sons and daughters whom she feels are connected with the kingship tussle in her community.
They made first attempt to illegally arresting him but were resisted by the youths of the community. And we all thought the matter had been laid to rest but alas, the power drunk first lady of Kogi State would not rest on her sinister intentions.
Just yesterday here (November 23, 2021), she came at it again. This time around, she masterminded the IGP Tactical Squad to invade the sacred palace of Ogieneni in an attempt to sneak him out to unknown whereabouts and possibly assassinate him. Again, our youths rose to the occasion and defended the sanctity of our kingdom.
As a community, we are using this medium to draw the attention of the President, General Muhammadu Buhari, the governor of Edo State, Governor Godwin Obaseki , the deputy governor, Philip Shaibu and the international community to come speedily to our rescue. Our King’s life is no longer safe and secured in the hands of DSS-infested by the wife of Yahaya Bello. We put it on records that, should anything bad happens to our King, she should be held responsible.
Concerned Uzairue Youths.
