Controversial cleric, Sat Guru Maharaj Ji has accused the police of aiding suspected landgrabbers to invade his sanctuary on the Lagos-Ibadan expressway.
Maharaji Ji made the accusation at a news conference in Ibadan and said the invasion left four of his followers injured.
“We have gotten two favourable judgments on this land and we have been using the land for farming until we saw these hoodlums invade the land.
“It is a pity that some people still engage in such heinous crimes in this country where government preaches rule of law and anti-corruption everyday,” he said.
“We wrote the police for the enforcement of the judgment and we petitioned Assistant Inspector General of Police office in Osogbo.
“Despite all these, they bribed their way for policemen to have led them here and gave them protection, definitely, something is wrong somewhere.
“My followers were beaten and injured while trying to stop the hoodlums, they are even threatening the life of my lawyer,” he said.
“I call on President Muhammadu Buhari, Gov. Seyi Makinde, Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi and Olubadan of Ibadanland, Oba Saliu Adetunji, to intevene.
“We can not accept injustice. We don’t want to fight them because we believe in rule of law and we are law-abiding citizens.
”I don’t want to fight them because we should give what belongs to Ceaser to Ceaser.
“This is what we have done now just to make sure that my mission on earth is accomplished, that is why I am holistic in whatever I am doing,” he said.
