Four followers of Sat Guru Maharaj Ji, the founder of the One Love Family sect, were injured as suspected landgrabbers invaded the community on Lagos-Ibadan expressway.
Maharaj Ji, who disclosed this on Tuesday at news conference in Ibadan, said the land was being used for farming.
He alleged that the suspected land grabbers were aided by the police.
“We have gotten two favourable judgements on this land and we have been using the land for farming until we saw these hoodlums invade the land.
“It is a pity that some people still engage in such heinous crimes in this country where government preaches rule of law and anti-corruption every day,” he said.
Maharaj Ji stated that the suspected land grabbers injured his followers who approached them over encroachment on the land.
“My followers were beaten and injured while trying to stop the hoodlums, they are even threatening the life of my lawyer,” he said.
He called on President Muhammadu Buhari Governor Seyi Makinde, Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi and Olubadan of Ibadanland, Oba Saliu Adetunji, to intevene.
“We can not accept injustice. We don’t want to fight them because we believe in the rule of law and we are law-abiding citizens.
”I don’t want to fight them because we should give what belongs to Ceaser to Ceaser.
“This is what we have done now just to make sure that my mission on earth is accomplished, that is why I am holistic in whatever I am doing,” he added.
Maharaj Ji said he was ready to lead efforts to ensure hoodlums and landgrabbers were arrested, prosecuted and jailed.
But when contacted, SP Gbenga Fadeyi, the Oyo State Police Public Relations Officer , said he was not aware of any petition on the matter.
Fadeyi said that petitions were usually sent to the Commissioner of Police, adding that if there was any petition on the issue, the complainant should follow it up.
