Lagos deposes traditional ruler who staged his kidnap

The Lagos state government has deposed Yusuf Ogundare, the baale of Shangisha, for faking his own abduction.

Ogundare was reportedly abducted on July 5 along center for management development (CMD) road in Ikosi-Isheri local council development area of the state.

Lagos state governor, Akinwunmi Ambode had earlier directed that he be suspended, in a memo addressed to the sole administrator of Ikosi-Isheri.

“I am directed to convey the approval of his excellency, governor Akinwunmi Ambode of the suspension of Chief Yusuf Ogundare, baale of Shangisha with immediate effect in accordance with Section 38 subsection 1 of the Obas and chiefs laws of Lagos state which states that ‘the governor may suspend or depose any Oba or chief whether appointed or after commencement of this law, if he is satisfied that such suspension of disposition is required according to customary law or is necessary in the interest of peace and good government’,” the memo had read.

Ogundare’s deposition was announced on Sunday.
