‘we don’t know why the suspect has not been arrested’  family of man who got missing at Lagos carnival cries out (‘there is nothing we can do’ Police)
 
When 53-year-old Kingsley Osanrenren aka Cello left his 42 Bello street, Ikosi-Ketu, Lagos home on the 26th of  December, 2022 for a carnival, he was looking forward to an exciting new year, but as fate would have it, six months after, Cello’s whereabout remains unknown causing sadness and fear to his family and friends.
His elder brother, Adebisi Temitope while addressing journalists in Lagos wept profusely as he begged Nigerians to help the family unravel the mystery behind his disappearance.
In his words ‘if he is dead, at least we should see the corpse and bury him, he has been missing since December, this is June and still no news. Nigerians should come to our aid’.
 Kingsley was reported to have attended a carnival in Ikosi area of Ketu, Lagos on the 26th of December, 2023 and was later seen at a popular car wash beside the Conoil fuel station along the Lagos/Ibadan expressway and had  disappeared since then.
The case was reported at the Ketu Police station where some suspects were arrested and later released before the family transferred the case to Panti, Lagos where the suspects were  re arrested and also released to the dismay of family members.
The suspect, Chinedu on the run!
 
three suspects, Oba, Oje and Tobi were arrested in connection with the missing person case. Tobi and Oba were arrested as they were squatters with the missing person, surprisingly they failed to report that he was missing and gave misleading statements to the police two months after the incident.
Another suspected, Oje was arrested. He was in posession of the missing man’s debit card and interestingly it was shown in the missing person’s statement of account that the suspect used his ATM card multiple times after he was declared missing.
The main suspect, Chinedu was with the missing man’s phone. Tracking showed that Chinedu’s phone and the missing person’s phone were within the same zone. Chinedu escaped to Imo State before he could be arrested. He was alleged to be the last person to have seen the missing ‘Cello’.
Chinedu was a worker at the car wash where the missing person was last seen and the family also alleged one Chief Razak Olokoba, the owner of the car wash to be disrupting the investigation and facilitated the suspect’s escape.
Tracking of missing person’s phone
Another family member, Eniola who had been going to the police station regularly to monitor the case claimed she is frustrated with the whole process as the police keeps delaying. in her words, the distraught young woman cried
‘every time I go to the station they take money from me, even the IPO collected 100,000 Naira for tracking his phone.  His phone was tracked to Chinedu, now that the suspect has escaped to Imo State where it was said that the tracking showed  the phone was still with him, but the police said they can’t go to Imo to arrest him because of the crisis in the state. Chinedu is the main suspect, all indications proved that and we are still wondering why he has not been arrested till now’.
‘nothing we can do’ Police reacts!
The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, SP Benjamin Hundeyin was contacted and he referred the family to the Deputy Commissioner of Police in charge of the SCID, DCP Waheed Ayilara who told the family that there is nothing the Police can do if it’s a missing person case.
Family Pleads With Nigerians
 
Kingsley’s family through their lawyer, Sodeinde is begging Nigerians for help. The lawyer said the missing person has an aged father, James Ibieorutomwen  who is on sickbed and is always asking after his eldest child.
The lawyer cited the case of hotelier, Rahman Adedoyin who has been sentenced for the murder of Timothy Adegoke while begging the police to do their job and put the family at peace.

K1’s lead talking drummer, Ayankunle Ayanlowo has listed the condition for him to reconcile with his boss, Wasiu Ayinde, the Mayegun of Yorubaland.

 

At his home in Felele, Ibadan in a private chat, the drummer in his request stated ‘I want them to settle our fight. I want them to call us together, he(Wasiu) should be God-fearing and state his part, while I should also be present to speak my mind. The elders should step in but God knows, I will never go back to him’.

 

When asked why he vowed never to go back, Ayanlowo replied, ‘he is vindictive, he never forgives and I’ve placed everything in the hands of God. I can never go back to the band”.

 

The lead drummer while confirming that some cleric leaders and traditional rulers have waded into the matter also said ‘part of my condition is that at any location they pick for the peace-meeting, if anything happens to me, I would hold the people that call for the meeting responsible and they’ve assured me nothing of sort would happen”.

 

He hinged his fears on the attack at his Felele, Ibadan home where his windows was shattered by people he believed to be loyalists of his boss.

 

‘I’ve worked with him for 32 years and now I want to be on my own, I’ve tried! They should just leave me in peace’, he begged.

 

Ayankunle had accused Wasiu  of providing a poor welfare package for his band members, which KWAM 1 has since denied and this has generated a lot of issues that called for the intervention of top monarch, the Aseyin of Iseyin, Oba Sefiu Adeyeri who claimed to have instructed Ayankunle to stop posting videos or granting interviews.

The Story Of Ibadan High Chiefs Who Died Two Months, Two Weeks Before They Could Become King

Published

With the passage of the Olubadan of Ibadanland, Oba Lekan Balogun some days ago, the ‘irukere’, (the horsetail, symbol of authority of Yoruba Obas) has pointed to where it’s going.

 

Without any consultation or appointment, the whole of Ibadanland understand it’s now the turn of High Chief Owolabi Olakulehin.

 

Such is the uniqueness of the Obaship tradition of Ibadan. It is the only kingdom in the world where every true son of Ibadan is a potential king. You don’t have to be a prince, all you need is a selection from your family house as a Mogaji (representative).

 

While the Obaship system and ascension to the coveted throne of Olubadan is unique and predictable, getting to the top of the ladder means a gift of long life for the highest ranking chiefs of the ancient Yorùbá capital city of Oyo State.

Becoming Olubadan is on rotational basis between the two lines of ascension to the throne headed by Ọtun Olubadan (Civil line) and Balogun (Military line). But in recent years, over a decade, there have been two high chiefs and of course, next-in-lines to the throne who never get to the top.

 

 

High Chief S.A. Omiyale (Balogun of Ibadan)

High Chief Sulaimon Adegboyega Omiyale was the Balogun of Ibadan land and next-in-line to Oba Samuel Odulana Odugade 1, the 40th Olubadan who reigned from 11th of August, 2007 to 19th of January, 2016 and died at the age of 101 years.

With Oba Odulana, who succeeded Oba Yinusa Ogundipe Arapasowu 1, as next-in-line from the Civil line, it was supposed to be the turn of High Chief Omiyale, had it been he lived to succeed the aged monarch.

But the Balogun of Ibadan land died on Saturday, 7th November, 2015 at the University College Hospital, UCH, Ibadan, at the age of 91.

Two months after his death, the reigning Olubadan, Oba Odulana died on 19th January, 2016.

High Chief Omowale Kuye (Ọtun Olubadan)

High Chief Omowale Kuye was the Ọtun Olubadan, traditional head of the Civil line. With Omiyale’s death, Kuye was a step closer to becoming Olubadan, but he also didn’t live to succeed the monarch.

Kuye, who was a former Director General, Special Duties and later Budget in the Office of the President of Nigeria — under both Alhaji Shehu Shagari and General Olusegun Obasanjo — died on 20th November, 2015; barely two weeks after the demise of Balogun of Ibadan land.

Because of the earlier death of Balogun Omiyale whose line was supposed to produce the next monarch after the reigning Olubadan, High Chief Kuye would’ve become the next Olubadan being the highest ranking of the Olubadan-in-Council, but he also passed on before Oba Odulana.

Additionally, the demise of both Balogun Omiyale and Ọtun Olubadan Kuye, paved the way for the then Otun Balogun, Saliu Akanmu Adetunji, who eventually succeeded Oba Odulana as the 41st Olubadan in 2016. He was also succeeded in 2022 by the recently deceased 42nd Olubadan, Oba Lekan Balogun, Alli Okunmade II.
