Osun Assembly orders arrest of Bola Ige’s son, Muyiwa over land issue

The Osun State House of Assembly on Wednesday issued a warrant of arrest against former Commissioner for Lands, Physical Planning and Urban Development, Muyiwa Ige, over an alleged land matter in Ilobu area of the state.

Though details of the circumstances culminating in the warrant of arrest against Muyiwa, who is the son of former Minister of Power and Steel, late Chief Bola Ige, were still sketchy as of the time of filing this report, the Nigerian Tribune reliably gathered that his alleged failure to appear before the legislature after being summoned compelled the House of Assembly to issue the arrest warrant.
The Majority Leader of the Osun State House of Assembly, Hon. Timothy Owoeye, signed the warrant of arrest issued against Ige.

When contacted on phone over the development, the ex-Commissioner said he was not aware of any summon directing him to appear before the Osun State House of Assembly, contending that he did not receive any letter from the legislature summoning him to appear before the lawmakers on any issue.

He stated: “I have been receiving all kinds of funny phone calls and I am sure that’s why you are calling me. I am so astounded that I don’t know what to say.
“Nobody even invited me. I don’t even know what it is about. What if I am even out of the country. Let’s even assume that I was invited and I did not even get the invitation and somebody was there, they could have picked up the phone and say they are expecting you here. How far is Lagos from Osogbo?
“The next action is his name is Ige, let’s put it out there. I was in Osogbo until 7pm yesterday (Tuesday). I don’t even know anything for now, but I will call you back. It is ridiculous. Let me find out and I will call you back.”
