Hoodlums attacked the palace of the traditional ruler of Ode in Akure North Local Government Area of Ondo State, Sunday Boboye, over a boundary dispute between the community and its neighbour, Isinigbo.
The Hoodlums allegedly burnt some parts of the palace around 12:30 a. m. on Tuesday morning.
“I want the Inspector-General of Police and other security agencies to order an investigation into this matter. This is a clear case of arson, intimidation, and attempts to kill me and wipe out my family,” the monarch revealed.
The spokesperson of the police in the state, Tee-Leo Ikoro, confirmed the incident stating that,
“We got a call from the palace that some hoodlums came to attack the palace and we immediately sent our men to the community to restore normalcy.
“We have also started an investigation into the matter to unravel the perpetrators.”
Adding that this is the second time the monarch’s palace will be attacked in one week. A similar incident reportedly took place last week.
