30-year-old man, Bukola Adediji, popularly known as Ajanlekoko, on Thursday, broke into the Palace of Soun of Ogbomoso and destroyed some property.

TRIXX NG learnt the said man was a drug addict and suspected to be mentally unstable.

It was gathered that the intruder attacked one of the chiefs who tried to prevent him from going inside the sitting room and knocked off the chief’s teeth during the attack.

The Soun stool is vacant at present following the death of Oba Oladunni Oyewumi on December 12, 2021. A new monarch is yet to ascend the throne.

Sources told PUNCH that Ajanlekoko had made a similar attempt to break into the palace before the Thursday incident but he was prevented.

The Palace Secretary, Mr Toyin Ajamu, who confirmed the intrusion said, “No crown was stolen contrary to claims in some quarters. He broke into the palace and injured Chief Aremole who wanted to drive him away.

 

“He knocked off two teeth from the chief but he was eventually overpowered and was handled to his family.

 

“He is not mentally stable as a result of hard drugs. I heard he takes Colorado and other hard drugs but our concern is why coming to the palace.

 

“He was handled over to his relatives and we have reported the incident to the police.”

 

Asked if Ajanlekoko is from a royal family, Ajamu said he is not a prince.

 

He said, “He is not from any of the royal families. He had made such attempt once and was overpowered and when they took him to Bowen Teaching Hospital because he was injured, they discovered that he is a patient there ( psychiatric department).”
