ABEOKUTA — The embattled Olofin of Ado-Odo in Ado-Odo-Ota Local Government Area of Ogun State,  Oba Abdul Lateef   Adeniran, who was beaten by hoodlums,  broke his silence, yesterday,  saying  the hoodlums that attacked him attempted to rape his wife while his crown and other valuables were stolen.

Oba Akanni,  who appeared before the Judicial Commission of Inquiry into the crisis that sat in Isabo, Abeokuta,  also lamented that a sum of  N1.5 million  kept in his palace as at the time of the incident was  stolen by the hoodlums who burnt down his palace.

The monarch was beaten by yet to be identified  hoodlums in the area before  his palace was  set ablaze  during an attack that occurred April 15, 2013.

Consequently, the  state  government set up a judicial commission to look into the crisis and come up with recommendation to the government.

The monarch  while giving a  graphic detail of how he was attacked, said, “I was   beaten with charms on that day and I would have been dead by now if not for the grace of God.”
