The Ogun State house of Assembly has ordered the arrest of Nigeria Nollywood star Gorilla Hassan for allegedly parading himself as a monarch.
The speaker of the house, Olakunle Oluomo, speaking during the plenary session on Thursday, stated that the actor should be arrested and presented before the Assembly within 14 days after parading himself as the king elect of Imobi in Ijebu-East LGA of the state.
Mr Hassan had previously snubbed two invitations to appear before the Assembly over the allegations levied against him.
Nollywood Star Declared Wanted
The actor’s arrest was ordered after a House Committee on Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs report, which accused the actor of converting the Government Community Dispensary House at Fotedo to private use.
The Chairman of the committee, Bolanle Ajayi, said Mr Hassan disobeyed the order of the lawmakers to stop parading himself as a king.
The committee has recommended that the Government building be taken over by the community and Mr Hassan be declared wanted.
He reiterated that Onitasin of Itasin land remains the only recognised authority in Imobi Land.
