OSOGBO— The Oloba of Oba-Oke in Olorunda Local Government Area of Osun State, Oba Dahunsi Iyiola, narrowly escaped death, Sunday, when irate mob from the neighbouring community of Oba-Ile invaded his palace and razed it alongside other buildings in the town.

According to sources, crisis started when the people of Oba-Ile invaded Oba-Oke after the celebration of their annual Oro festival.

The source said: “The crisis happened when the Oloba of Oba-Ile, Oba Adebisi Adeeyo, was celebrating Oro festival and the youths prevented neighbouring villagers to cross their boundary.”

During the melee that ensued between the two communities, cutlasses, guns and machetes were freely used by both sides, causing injuries of various degrees.

The state Police Commissioner, Mrs Dorothy Gimba, who confirmed the development, said his command, on receiving the information, moved to the area of conflict to douse tension.

Gimba said the Police, on arrival, were shot at and the windscreen of their official vehicle damaged by the youths. She said they prevented the Police from entering the town.

She added that no death was recorded, while Oba Iyiola whose palace was razed before Police arrived, was rescued.
