The Lagos State Police Commissioner, Fatai Owoseni, has disclosed that two traditional rulers in Oworonsoki area of Lagos State are being investigated for their roles in bloody clashes in their communities.

Owoseni made the declaration on Saturday, February 20, 2015 when he met with newsmen over the activities of the Police in Lagos State.

Though the commissioner withheld the names of the two monarchs under investigation, he said the development saddened the command.

In his words, “We are investigating them for their alleged involvement in crisis that engulfed the area which led to the death of one Nosuru Oguntade.

“It was believed to have been masterminded by the two royal fathers over leadership tussle.

“The command is sad over the development. As we speak, the State CID, Panti,Yaba, is still interrogating the two men with a view to ascertaining their involvement.

“Four persons were arrested and are still under interrogation, while one of the sons of the leaders has been declared wanted.

“We want to state here that no matter the status of those involved in this crisis, we will prosecute them if found culpable,’’ he said.
