Ogun monarch allegedly blinds trader for dancing with queen

A trader, Wasiu Oduwole, has demanded justice after a traditional ruler, Nureni Oduwaye, allegedly kicked his eye at the Moore Blessing Hotel, Ikenne, in the Sagamu Local Government Area of Ogun State.

The victim claimed he could no longer see with the eye.

It was gathered that Oduwaye perpetrated the act after allegedly accusing Wasiu of dancing with his queen during a birthday celebration at the hotel.

The monarch, his queen, alongside other guests, were said to have been invited by the celebrant, identified simply as Iya Alaje.

Before the celebration commenced, Wasiu told our correspondent that the owner of the hotel, Yakub Omobolanle, contracted him to prepare 14 plates of catfish pepper soup for the guests.

The trader said he had visited the hotel to commence preparation when he realised that the ingredients for the pepper soup were not enough.

The Ogun State indigene said suddenly, the monarch asked him to identify himself and he said he was the younger brother of the owner of the hotel.

He claimed that the Oduwaye angrily left for his car, adding that the hotel owner and the husband of the celebrant ran after him, but Iya Alaje’s husband returned and instructed him to apologise to the monarch.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, SP Abimbola Oyeyemi, confirmed the incident.
