the Agbowu of Ogbaagba, Oba Dhikirullahi Akinropo has dragged the Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Adewale Akanbi to court over an alleged assault last month.
We reported last month that the Oluwo of Iwo allegedly physically assaulted the Agbowu, this led to his suspension by the Osun State Traditional Rulers Council.
The Agbowu of Ogbaagba, Oba Dhikirullahi Akinropo has now taken legal steps, as he sued the Oluwo before an Osun State High Court, sitting in Osogbo.
He is reportedly also seeking the payment of N100 million as general damages for the assault on his person.
According to the writ of summons endorsed by his counsel Soji Oyetayo and obtained by journalists in the state, the Agbowu also sought the court to grant the award of N1 million against the defendants as cost of enlisting legal service.
He further asked the court to prevent Oba Akanbi from intimidating, harrasing nor threaten to attack him, while he should be compelled to desist from any action that could cause breach of peace anywhere in Iwo, Ayedire and Olaoluwa Local Government areas of the state.
In a writ of summons dated 27th of Feb, 2020,supported by a 39 paragraphs statement of Claims, Oba Akinropo said the Oluwo pounced of him at the AIG office, in the presence of other monarchs and some member of the state executive council, inflicting injury on him which was later treated at the State Specialist Hospital, Asubiaro, Osogbo.
