The Majority Leader of the Osun State House of Assembly, Honorable Timothy Owoeye, was allegedly caught taking a ‘ritual’ bath inside a bush at Osunjela area of Osogbo, capital of Osun State in the dead of the night.
Some youths in the community caught the legislators at the bath. Some of the youth said he was bathing with blood but they could not ascertain whether it was human or animal blood.
The youths beat up the politician, seized his clothes and recorded him naked on their phones.
The politician was said to have negotiated with the youths and promised them certain things before they returned his clothes and released him.
He eventually gave some to certain people as promised.
The lawmaker later reported to the police matter to the police and 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 the accused persons were remanded in Ilesa prison.
