An intruder, who reportedly laced himself with charms, was arrested within the Palace of Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Olayiwola Adeyemi III.
The mission of the intruder was unclear, but being laced with charms signified whatever he was in the palace for must be bad.
The stranger who sneaked into the palace around 6a.m. was said to have been arrested before he was able to fulfill his mission.
Unknown to the suspect, as soon as he jumped into the compound, the palace guards were said to have spotted him. They grabbed him before he was able to make any move.
After he reportedly failed to respond to all the questions put to him, he was handed over to the police at the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS, of the Oyo Police Division for further questioning.
Confirming the incident, officer in charge of the SARS Sola Aremu said the suspect is being interrogated by the police.
