As a result of the incident, some young people made threats to harm the king’s property, according to our correspondent.

Police officers from the Badagry division intervened, however, and prevented them from following through on their threat.

Kunnuji allegedly complained to the station, and the police allegedly refused to make an arrest.

According to reports, a policeman led the high chief to the Badagry General Hospital, where he received medical attention.

According to a medical record from the hospital that our correspondent was able to get, Kunnuji was sent there by Inspector Amina Bara.

The investigation confirmed that, despite being awake when he was taken to the hospital, Kunnuji was in pain and was bleeding from an injury to the area above his eyes.

The high chief, who spoke with our journalist, claimed that the monarch beat him up when he visited him after coming back from Jerusalem.

Kunnuji revealed that the king and he were at odds when he bought a transformer for the neighbourhood, a proposal the king opposed.

He said, “On September 30, 2022, I went to meet the monarch alongside the bishop that came to do thanksgiving for my coronation anniversary. When I got there, I greeted him in our Egun dialect, saying, ‘I hail you, your highness.’ Then he started shouting in public, saying, ‘Do you see him, look at the way he is greeting me.’

“He told me I was stupid and I also replied that he was stupid. Before I knew it, he punched me in my face with a ring and blood started coming out. I did not retaliate; I just left his palace with my bloodied face.

“I and my lawyer, who was present at the scene, went to the Badagry Police Station to report the assault on my person. After writing a statement, the police said they could not arrest him because he was a king.

He said, “We know that nobody is above the law. If an Oba has committed an infraction that is criminal, he must be dealt with accordingly.”

When contacted, the monarch did not confirm or deny the allegations against him.

Adamson, however, said that the high chief could go to court.

He said, Let him go to court, what is your own problem? Are you not a journalist? Why are you asking me such a question? Why can’t you advise him to go to court? Is this the work of a journalist?” With a hiss, he ended the call.

SP Peter Gbesu, DPO of the Badagry Police Station, refuted the claim that the cops were unable to detain or summon the king.

He opted not to comment further and directed our correspondent to the state police spokesperson.

SP Benjamin Hundeyin, the state police’s press officer, made a commitment to confirm and follow up.

Hundeyin requested that our correspondent not bother him after numerous failed attempts to reach him for days, claiming that he could not be coerced into responding to the incident.Jamb Result 

The police spokesman said he would follow up after our correspondent pressed him further, emphasising the need to reply to claims that the police had compromised the case.
