The State of Osun House of Assembly has issued a warrant of arrest against late Chief Bola Ige’s son who was also a former commissioner for Lands, Physical planning and Urban Development in the state, Hon. Muyiwa Ige.

The warrant was signed by the majority leader, Hon. Timothy Owoeye.

Ige was alleged to have ignored the assembly’s call for questions over a land issue in Ilobu community.

Reacting to the news through a phone call, the commissioner however, said he didn’t receive any invitation from the House of Assembly.

Ige who sounded shocked said that, “I don’t know what to say, nobody invited me, I don’t know what this is all about. A phone call should have been put across to me. I was in Osogbo till 7pm yesterday. How much would it have taken me to get to Osogbo from Lagos State.”
