House of Assembly declares Nollywood actor wanted

A Nollywood actor, Goriola Hassan has been wanted by the Ogun State House of Assembly for allegedly parading himself as the Oba-elect of Imobi, a community in the Ijebu-East Local Government Area of the State.

Speaker of the House, Olakunle Oluomo, during plenary on Thursday ordered that Hassan should be arrested and presented to the Assembly within 14 days.

It was learnt that the Lawmakers had in August threatened to issue a warrant of arrest on Goriola after he snubbed two previous invitations of the House over the allegations against him.

The Speaker ordered Hassan’s arrest following the presentation and adoption of the report of the House Committee on Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs.

The committee Chairman, Bolanle Ajayi, while reading the committee’s report, accused Goriola of converting a government building to private use.

The Nollywood actor was also accused of disobeying the orders of constituted authority that asked him to stop parading himself as the Olu of Imobi.

The committee affirmed that the Onitasin of Itasin remained the only king and prescribed authority in Imobi land.
