A commercial motorist, Kehinde Akangbe has been banished from Omu- Aran community by the Traditional Council for killing his 22-year-old biological son.
NAN gathered that the directive for the commercial motorist to be exiled from the community within one week started on Friday after the council’s weekly meeting.
According to NAN, his late 22-year-old who was a wheel barrow pusher, died as a result of the injury he sustained from a fire allegedly set on him by his father.
The late Sola was accussed of stealing some money from road side beggars in Omu-Aran when he was caught and handed over to his father.
The agitated father allegedly took his son to a near by bush along Omu-Aran/Isanlu-Isin road, tied him up and set him ablaze.
Sola who was rescued alive, told his rescuers that his father was responsible for act.
The council had since tried Kehinde for the crime.
According to the spokesperson for the Omu-Aran Traditional Council, Chief Azeez Adeniyi,while speaking on the development of the case on Monday, said Kehinde’s action was a bad example and was totally different to the community’s laid down rules and regulations.
Banished Driver As A Yardstick
Adeniyi said the council took the step of banishment as a warning to others, who might want to follow Kehinde’s antecedents in their community.
However, the spokesperson further disclosed that the Isin Traditional Council in Isanlu-Isin where Kehinde hails from is aware of the vacation order, Kehinde has also been duly notified of the councils order, adding that failure to adhere would yield to further sanctions.
Oba Charles Ibitoye, who happens to be the traditional ruler of the Omu-Aran community, said the community would continue to extend its hands of hospitality and friendship to peace-loving and patriotic citizens, irrespective of ethno-religious or political affiliations. Urging the people to imbibe unity and peaceful co-existence and abandon acts of violence.
