The Oyo State High Court sitting in Ogbomoso has remanded one of the traditional rulers of the state.

DAILY POST reports that the traditional ruler, Mr. Oloko of Oko, Oba Solomon Akinola and 14 others have been detained at the Abolongo detention center.

They were remanded on Wednesday on suspicion of continued violent attacks, attempted murder and land robbery.

Justice KA Adedokun issued this order when the state lawyer, IO Abdulzeze, informed the court that the complainant, Dr. Isaac Abiodun, was attacked again by the defendants in Agba village.

Apart from the traditional rulers, others who were remanded to court include Chief Sunday Aderinto, Chief Jimoh Asimiyu, Timothy Aderinto, Matthew Akintaro, Rafiu Ganiu and Adejare Aderele.

The others are Samson Ogunmola, Zachius Aderele, Kamruedeen Ajibade, Raji Lasak, Mutiu Arowosaye, Oyeyemi Oyelekan, Olusegun Oyelekan and Sheriff Adio.

During his speech, Justice Adedokun frowned at the recent acts of violence against Abiodun.

The judge remanded the defendants and adjourned the case until November 27 for a bail application hearing.
