OGHA Summons Nollywood Actor Over Claim To Traditional Stool

Ogun State House of Assembly, OGHA, has again summoned one Mr. Goriola Hassan, over his purported claim to the Obaship stool of Imobi-Ijebu, in Ijebu East Local Government Area of the state.

The House Committee on Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs led by Mrs. Bolanle Ajayi, issued the summon on Tuesday during the second meeting on the same petition against Hassan over his purported claim to the Obaship stool of Imobi by the Imobi Descendants’ Union.

The second sitting had in attendance the traditional rulers including Onitasin of Itasin, Oba Adenola Adegbesan, the concerned Baales and other community leaders from the area at the Assembly Complex, Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta.

Mrs. Ajayi in company of other lawmakers added that the said Hassan should stop parading himself as the Olu of Imobi, in line with the directive of the Ogun State government conveyed to him through the Ministry of Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs and should appear before the Committee on 2nd September, 2021 by 11:00 am at the Assembly Complex, Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta. 

The Committee Chairman emphasised that failure of the said Goriola Hassan to honour the Assembly’s invitation, having failed to show up after two earlier invitations would lead to issuing his warrant of arrest.

Speaking earlier, the OGHA Speaker, Mr. Olakunle Oluomo, said the invitee, who approached him last week on the matter, had been told in clear terms that he should honour the invitation of the committee as the Assembly was empowered to investigate his purported claim to the Obaship stool of Imobi, upon which the stakeholders in the community had petitioned the Assembly.
