The Ogun Assembly Committee on Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, said on Tuesday that Hassan had earlier failed to honour an invitation sent to him by the lawmakers by the committee led by Hon. Bolanle Ajayi.

They however summoned Adeniyi to appear before it next Tuesday, in order to respond to a petition written against him by a group known as the Imobi Descendants’ Union over his purported claim to the Obaship stool of Imobi-Ijebu.

Meanwhile, the committee has ordered Hassan to stop parading himself as a traditional ruler in Imobi and asked him to appear before the House Committee with all the 36 Baales (local chiefs) under the community to enable the Assembly find a lasting solution to the Obaship issues brought before it.

“Failure to honour the invitation would result in the issuance of an arrest warrant to all invitees, especially Goriola Hassan, who failed to honour an earlier invitation extended to him by the Assembly,” the committee chairman had said.
