Ex-Ogun Deputy Speaker Arraigned Over Breach Of Peace, Threat To Life

A former Deputy Speaker of Ogun House of Assembly, Oludare Kadiri, was, on Wednesday, arraigned on a two-count charge of threat to life and breach of peace.

The Prosecutor, Inspector Lawrence Olu-Balogun, told the Court that the defendant committed the offence on Tuesday at about 8:40 am at the Ogun State House of Assembly in Oke-Mosan.

The Court heard how the defendant came into the premises of the Ogun House of Assembly and threatened the lives of lawmakers and other staff of the Assembly by using his car to block the entrance gate of the House of Assembly.

According to the prosecutor, the former Deputy Speaker conducted himself in a manner likely to cause a breach of peace by mounting an attack that disrupted the lawmaking process of the Assembly.

He further stated that the defendant, who had been on suspension since March 2022, told the Police that he received a judgment from an Ogun High Court, asking him to resume his duty.

He added that when the defendant got to the premises of the Assembly, the security operatives at the gate denied him entrance into the House of Assembly.

According to him, the offences contravene Sections 86(1) and 249(D) of the Criminal Code, Laws of Ogun, 2006.

The Chief Magistrate, Mrs. M.O. Osinbajo, admitted the defendant to bail on self-recognisance and adjourned the case till June 1 for trial.
