Police arrested Ogun monarch over alleged N15.5m land fraud


The Baale of Ferowa village in Ifo Local Government Area of Ogun State, Chief Muyideen Folorunso, has been arrested by the police over alleged N15.5 million land deal.

A statement issued yesterday by the command’s spokesman, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said Folorunso’s arrest followed a petition written by the management of Jaxmat Homes and Properties that the company had purchased 23 acres of land from the suspect for N15.5 million.

The statement said few months after the payment was made, the traditional ruler sold 17 acres out of the land to another set of people.

Oyeyemi said when the suspect was arrested and interrogated, he confessed to having sold the land to the petitioner, but “when he needed some money for his coronation he was tempted to sell parts of the land.”
