A popular Yoruba actor, Goriola Adeniyi Hassan risks being arrested for parading himself as the Oba of Imobi, in Ijebu-East Local Government Area of Ogun State, DAILY POST reports.
Goriola Hassan is the former husband of another Nollywood star, Ayo Adesanya.
The Ogun State House of Assembly threatened to order his arrest should he fail to appear before it on August 17, 2021.
The Ogun Assembly Committee on Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, said on Tuesday, 10 August, 2021 that Hassan had earlier failed to honour an invitation sent to him by the lawmakers.
The committee led by Hon. Bolanle Ajayi summoned Adeniyi to appear before it next Tuesday, 17 August, 2021 in order to respond to a petition written against him by a group known as the Imobi Descendants’ Union.
The petition, it was gathered, bothered on his purported claim to the Obaship stool of Imobi-Ijebu.
The committee has ordered Hassan to stop parading himself as a traditional ruler in Imobi.
He was also asked to appear before the House Committee with all the 36 Baales (local chiefs) under the community.
This, DAILY POST learnt, is to enable the Assembly find a lasting solution to the Obaship issues brought before it.
“Failure to honour the invitation would result in the issuance of an arrest warrant to all invitees, especially Goriola Hassan, who failed to honour an earlier invitation extended to him by the Assembly,” the committee Chairman said.
