The Lagos state governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, on Sunday deposed the suspended
Baale of Shangisha in Magodo, Chief Yusuf Ogundare, for faking his July 5 abduction.

Governor Ambode had last Friday
suspended Ogundare moments after he was paraded alongside his brother, Mohammed
Adams, by the Lagos State Police Command for conspiring to fake the alleged kidnap.

In a press release signed by the state’s Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Hon. Muslim Folami, the
governor ordered Ogundare to henceforth desist from parading himself as the Baale of
Shangisha or discharge any duties attached to chieftaincy matters in the state.
Folami, in the statement, said: “This is to inform the general public that His Excellency,
Governor Akinwunmi Ambode has
authorized the deposition and prosecution by police of Chief Yusuf Mutiu Ogundare,
Baale of Shangisha with immediate effect.

“This is in accordance with Section 38, subsection 1 of the Obas and Chiefs Laws of Lagos State inter-alia “The Governor may
suspend or depose any Oba or Chief whether appointed before or after commencement of this law, if he is satisfied that such suspension or deposition is
required according to customary law or is necessary in the interest of peace or good government.

“Furthermore, he (Ogundare) is to stop parading himself, purports to exercise or discharge any of the duties attached to Chieftaincy Matters with immediate effect.”

Folami said the deposition follows the formal confession of the Baale to security services that he staged his own kidnap to blackmail the State Government.

The state’s Commissioner of Police, Fatai Owoseni, while parading the suspects at the
Lagos House in Ikeja, had narrated how they conspired to perfect the fake kidnap, all in a bid to implicate the Oba of Magodo, as well as rubbish the state government and security agencies.
Owoseni said six days after the incident, some men of the Rapid Response Squad on
patrol in the Alausa area at about 10pm apprehended Ogundare after he was dropped in a suspicious manner by a car
which sped off immediately.
