An Ikeja High Court on Tuesday sentenced the deposed Baale of Shangisha in the Magodo area of Lagos, Mutiu Ogundare to a 15-year jail term.


The traditional ruler was charged with faking his kidnapping and breaching of peace.


Recall that the former Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode on July 13, 2022, suspended the Baale over a kidnap incident.


After five years, Justice Hakeem Oshodi, on Tuesday, sentenced Ogundare, having convicted him of a two-count bordering on breach of peace in the state and fake kidnapping.


Also jailed for the same prison term was his brother, Opeyemi Mohammed.


The court, however, set his wife Abolanle, free, having earlier absolved her of the charges earlier leveled against her.
