Intervene for Ilodo community over alleged monarch's attack,

A human rights group, Save the Poor and Needy Charity Initiative (SPANCI) has called on governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo state to save the people of Ilodo in Oriire local government area from attacks and threats of the Alamura of Amura in the same local government area, Oba Samuel Olakunle. 

SPANCI President, Comrade Yemi Ezekiel Bello made this appeal in a statement made available to journalists on Thursday. 

Bello in the statement, alleged that  Olakunle led some thugs to Ilodo land  on Wednesday April 3, 2024 with dangerous weapons and beat some people in the community in a bid to grab their land. 

He then appealed to Makinde, the Chairman Oyo state government taskforce on real property protection and anti-land grabbing law and other stakeholders in the by state to save the people of Ilodo from the traditional ruler's attacks and threats. 

He said, "An Urgent appeal to Governor Seyi Makinde to Save the soul of Ilodo people from assassination, killing and threat to their lives by Oba Samuel Olakunle the Alamura of amura land and his thugs.

"We were reliably informed of how Oba Samuel Olakunle the Alamura of Amura land who the state government has prosecuted on about four counts charges bothering on land grabbing, conspiracy, self help and other on ilodo land before, led some thugs to ilodo land  on Wednesday April 3, 2024 with dangerous weapons and invaded ilodo's land and instructed his thugs to beat the Ilodo's and their workers.

"We were informed that the Oyo state government taskforce on real property protection and anti-land grabbing law has invited both Ilodo's and Alamura to appear on Wednesday April 3, 2024 but the Ilodo's on their way coming saw Alamura leading his thugs with tractor and dangerous weapons to unlawfully invade Ilodo's land, (the same land upon which he was prosecuted and the matter which is still before the court) and grab it for cultivation. 

"To prove them right, their members and their workers on the land called them that Alamura and his thugs have invaded the land and started beating them at Alamura's instruction . Alamura and his people deliberately shunned the state government taskforce on real property protection and anti-land grabbing law to be able to perpetrate the criminal act.

"We hereby appeal to His Excellency, Engineer Abiodun Oluseyi Makinde, the Chairman Oyo state government taskforce on real property protection and anti-land grabbing law, the honorable Commissioner for local government and chieftaincy matters, the honorable Commissioner for justice and attorney general Oyo State, the Speaker Oyo state house of assembly and the CJ Oyo State judiciary to investigate the matter and take necessary actions in line with the law to save the souls of Ilodo royal family members and their workers from the threatened killing of Alamura of Amura Oba Olakunle Samuel".
