The details of what led to Tijani Oniru, one of the sons of late Oba Abiodun Oniru being beaten has been revealed.

Recall that a  video of the socialite being  beaten up by boys wearing Tee-shirts engraved with security went viral online today.

Explaining what happened, an insider revealed that the fight is connected to the control of some properties in highbrow Oniru, Eti Osa Local Government Area of Lagos State worth billions of Naira.

The insider stated that the children of the former Oniru of Iruland continued to maintain control of the property after the death of their father.

 

He revealed that the  installation of Oba Omogbolahan Lawal, the 15th Oniru of Iruland saw him asking banks housing funds belonging to the royal family to immediately freeze all the accounts of the family and also directed all tenants and lessees to stop transacting with any individual.

However, the family of the late monarch continued to exercise control over some of the properties which they claimed belonged to them and not to the royal family.

Prince Tijani’s beating on Sunday, July 5 started after he led his own men to beat up those posting notices on the properties under contention, as directed by Oba Lawal.

 

Below is the insider’s  account:

 

“On Sunday morning, the new Oniru’s boys went about posting public notices on some of the properties but TJ (Tijani) got his boys to beat them up and chase them away. Later in the day, as TJ was making his way into Millennium Estate, the boys regrouped and beat him up.”

Following the controversy the viral video ignited, one of the palace official who was seen fighting with Tijani Oniru has now been suspended. Oba Lawal who announced the palace official’s suspension in a statement released by his media office, also confirmed that Tijani Oniru attacked the palace officials first.

An investigation is also being conducted.

 

The statement read;

 

“On Sunday, July 5, 2020, a rather regrettable incident occurred within the Oniru Estate Neighbourhood (close to Millennium Estate gate) which culminated in an altercation between some officials of Oniru’s palace and a group led by Prince Tijani Oniru.

“A team of palace officials led by Prince Murisiku Ajasa were allegedly accosted by Prince Tijani Oniru and some other persons. The palace officials were on a routine inspection to supervise the work being done by an inventory and enumeration group.

“In the ensuing heated argument, it was alleged that Prince Tijani Oniru slapped the leader of the palace officials who was also alleged to have retaliated. Fortunately, the police quickly intervened to prevent further escalation.

“Notwithstanding the provocative affront to the authority of the Oniru and desecration tradition, the Oniru warned palace officials to remain emotionally stable in the discharge of their duties even in the face of provocation. In addition, he sees no reason or excuse for violence in Iruland.

“Consequently, kabiyesi has directed the palace administrator to immediately suspend the official involved in the incident pending full investigation. His majesty enjoins all parties to desist from all forms of violence and uphold peace, law and order.”
