Ogun assembly orders Nollywood actor’s arrest

Ogun State House of Assembly

The Ogun State House of Assembly has called for the arrest of Nollywood star, Goriola Hassan, for allegedly parading himself as the Oba-elect of Imobi in the Ijebu-East Local Government Area of the state.

The Speaker, Olakunle Oluomo, disclosed this in plenary on Thursday, directing that Hassan should be arrested and presented to the Assembly within 14 days.

The Assembly had in August threatened to issue a warrant of arrest on Goriola after he declined two previous invitations over allegations against him.

Oluomo called for the arrest of the actor following the presentation and adoption of the report of the House Committee on Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs.

The committee chairman, Bolanle Ajayi, while reading the committee’s report, accused Goriola of converting a building belonging to the government for personal use. Ajayi also accused the Nollywood actor of disobeying the orders of constituted authority that directed him to stop parading himself as the Olu of Imobi.

The committee affirmed that the Onitasin of Itasin remained the only king and prescribed authority in Imobi land.

The committee recommended that the government building, which was the Government’s Community Dispensary House at Fotedo, Imobi, converted to private use by the actor should be taken over by the community and he should be declared wanted and handed over to the security agencies.
