It is with grief that President Bola Tinubu receives the news of the killing of two traditional rulers in Ekiti State, the Onimojo of Imojo-Ekiti, Oba Olatunde Samuel Olusola, and the Elesun of Esun-Ekiti, Oba David Babatunde Ogunsola.
President Tinubu condemns this mindless and brutal bloodletting, and pledges that the perpetrators will not escape justice.
A press release by Chief Ajuri Ngelale, the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, said the President condoled with the families and subjects of the traditional rulers, Governor Biodun Oyebanji, and the people of Ekiti State on “this deeply agonizing development.”
In the same vein, the President directed the immediate rescue of pupils and teachers kidnapped around Eporo-Ekiti area of the state.
“As security of life and property is the primary responsibility of government, President Tinubu assures Nigerians that the nation’s security architecture was being robustly fortified for better and expected outcomes,” he said.
