Prince Gabriel John, a community leader in Ita-Agbede, Agosasa, Ogun State, weekend, pleaded with the Department of State Service, DSS, to release Prince Sunday Akogunrin, the heir to the throne of their community, from their custody to allow peace reign in the town.

John said the continued detention of their king- elect would continue to disrupt the peace and tranquillity of the town.

He said the chaos in Agosasa began when their king died and as custom demands, the kingmakers asked the next ruling house to present their prince for traditional rites to commence.

“In Agosasa town, we have two ruling houses. When one dies another king will come from the other side.

“The ruling house met and nominated Prince Akogunrin as the next king and the kingmakers started preparing him for the seat when another contestant to the throne (name withheld) brought out a gun and shot one of the supporters of the heir apparent.

“This resulted in a crisis which led to the burning of many houses including the house of the man who shot the supporter of the heir apparent. The government came in and resolved the matter.

”The problem is that our community is solidly in support of the heir apparent but opponents have people in government that continue to protect him against the wishes of our people.”
