Lagos: Police Arrest, Charge Erelu Okin Over Petrol Souvenir


The Lagos State Police Command have arrested Pearl Chidinma Ogbolu, popularly known as Erelu Okin, over her controversial party in the state.
Recall that she distributed kegs of petrol as souvenirs at the event which was held in Havilah Events Centre in Oniru, Victoria Island, on March 4.

The spokesman of the command, Adekunle Ajisebutu, in a statement released on Tuesday disclosed that Ogbolu was charged to court on Monday.

Ogbolu was arraigned on a four-count charge of conduct likely to cause a breach of peace, endangering human life by distributing combustible matter in a public gathering.
Other charges levelled against her include, intent to do harm to another, unlawful storage and containerising petroleum product without a permit.

It was gathered that Ogbolu was brought before the Special Offences (Mobile) Court of Lagos State at Oshodi under Ikeja Magisterial District.

The spokesman, however, did not reveal if Ogbolu pleaded guilty to the charges levelled against her or not.
The Commissioner of Police in the state, Abiodun Alabi had ordered her arrest after the event centre was sealed.

He took the opportunity to enhance his commitment to protect lives and property in the state and warned citizens against acts capable of endangering human lives.
