Nigeria: Man With Charms Caught in Alaafin's Palace

Ibadan — AN uninvited man, who reportedly laced himself with charms, was arrested within the Palace of Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Olayiwola Adeyemi III.

The intrusion was said to have held princesses and other people living in the expansive premises spellbound.

According to information gathered, the stranger sneaked into the palace around 6a.m. The stranger was said to have been arrested before he was able to fulfil his mission.

Unknown to the suspect, as soon as he jumped into the compound, the palace guards were said to have spotted him.

After he reportedly failed to respond to all the questions put to him, he was handed over to the police at the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS, of the Oyo Police Division for further interrogation.

The policeman in charge of SARS, Sola Aremu, confirmed the incident.
