Osun State, south-west Nigeria has been rocked with new that the Majority Leader of the House of Assembly, Honorable Timothy Owoeye, was caught allegedly taking a ‘ritual’ bath inside a bush at Osunjela area of Osogbo, in the dead of night.
Some youths in the community had caught the legislator during the bath, alleging that he was bathing with blood though they could not ascertain whether it was human or animal blood.
They allegedly beat up the politician, seized his clothes and recorded him naked on their phones.
Daily Trust reports that the compromised politician had to negotiate with the youths and promised them certain things before they returned his clothes and released him.
The lawmaker later reported the matter to the police after which several people in the community were arrested for collecting money from the politician in a fraudulent manner.
The suspects were arraigned in court in Osogbo on Friday and were later remanded in Ilesa prison.
Hon Owoeye has yet to respond to the allegation.
