Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode on Sunday deposed the suspended Baale of Shangisha in Magodo, Chief Yusuf Ogundare for allegedly faking his abduction.
The incident took place on July 5 along Center for Management Development (CMD) Road in Ikosi-Isheri Local Council Development Area (LCDA) of the State.
Recall that Ambode a few days ago suspended Ogundare, moments after he was paraded alongside his brother, Mohammed Adams by the Lagos State Police Command for conspiring to fake the alleged kidnap.
In a press release signed by the State’s Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Hon Muslim Folami, the Governor ordered Ogundare to henceforth desist from parading himself as the Baale of Shangisha or discharge any duties attached to chieftaincy matters in the State.
State Commissioner of Police, Mr Fatai Owoseni, while parading the suspects at the Lagos House in Ikeja, had narrated how they conspired to perfect the fake kidnap, all in a bid to implicate the Oba of Magodo, as well as rubbish the State Government and security agencies.
Owoseni said six days after the incidence, some men of the Rapid Response Squad (RRS) on patrol in Alausa area at about 10pm apprehended Ogundare after he was dropped in a suspicious manner by a car which sped off immediately.
