Murder of Two Ekiti Monarchs Extremely Painful – Sultan of Sokoto

The killing of two Ekiti traditional rulers has been condemned by the Sultan of Sokoto and President-General of the Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs, NSCIA, Alhaji Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar.

 

This is as he expressed concern over the recent murders.

 

In a statement issued on Friday by his media team, the Sultan said the development is one that all must condemn, describing it as unfortunate.

 

Recall that two traditional rulers, identified as the Onimojo of Imojo-Ekiti, Oba Samuel Olushola; and the Elesun of Esun-Ekiti, Oba David Ogunsakin, were killed by gunmen suspected to be bandits.

 

They were killed on Monday while returning from a security meeting in Ikole Local Government Area of Ekiti State.

 

Reacting, the Sultan said the unfortunate incident was “extremely painful and very unfortunate”.

 

He called on the Inspector General of Police and heads of other relevant security agencies to go after the killers and present them before the law of the land for justice to be done.

 

“The police should take its anti-crime battle to these criminals now, wherever they are, whoever they are and ensure that no matter their status and stature in the society, they should not be spared and must be brought to justice, while efforts must be made to henceforth prevent repeat of such dastardly act before it happens in the future,” he said.
