The Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, on Sunday deposed the suspended Baale of Shangisha in Magodo, Chief Yusuf Ogundare, for allegedly faking his abduction on July 5, 2017.
Ambode had last Friday suspended Ogundare after he was paraded alongside his brother, Mohammed Adams, by the Lagos State Police Command for conspiring to fake the alleged kidnap.
In a statement by the Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Muslim Folami, the governor ordered Ogundare to thenceforth desist from parading himself as the Baale of Shangisha.
“This is to inform the general public that Governor Akinwunmi Ambode has authorised the deposition and prosecution by police of Chief Yusuf Ogundare, Baale of Shangisha, with immediate effect.

“Furthermore, he (Ogundare) is to stop parading himself or discharge any of the duties attached to chieftaincy matters with immediate effect,” the statement read in part.
