Ogun State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun, on Wednesday promised to unmask the sponsors and perpetrators of mayhem in Agosasa town in Ipoka Local Government Area of the state, over the obaship tussle, with a promise to prosecute them.

It would be recalled that clashes erupted in the town at the weekend over the next Oja of Agosasa, leading to the death of at least one person.

The violence also left some residents with injuries, while  property worth several millions of naira were reportedly destroyed.

Governor Abiodun in a statement on Wednesday, in Abeokuta, by his Chief Press Secretary, Kunle Somorin, condemned the violence and declared that anyone found culpable in the skirmish will be arrested and prosecuted according to the extant laws of the state.

The governor noted that the state has been known to be peaceful and serene for investment, saying his administration would not allow any individual or group of individuals to thwart the peace being enjoyed in the state.

Abiodun, who expressed his dissatisfaction over the incident he described as unfortunate, said there are legitimate channels issues of obaship can be addressed without recourse to violent clash.
