Ondo monarchs declare killing Olufon of Ifon taboo

Ondo monarchs declare killing Olufon of Ifon taboo

Traditional rulers in Ondo State have said that last week killing of the Olufon of Ifon, Oba Isreal Adeusi, by yet to be identified gunmen was a taboo in Yoruba land.

The Ondo monarchs, who spoke through the Chairman, Ondo State Council of Obas, His Majesty, Oba Dr. Frederick Akinruntan, the Olugbo of Ugbo, described the murder of late Oba Adeusi as an unfortunate development which people of good conscience in the state must condemn.

Oba Akinruntan stated that all efforts must be put in place to ensure that the sacred status of Yoruba royal fathers is not demystified by insecurity.

The Olugbo of Ugbo urged Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu to use the machinery of the state to stem the tide of rising insecurity in the state.

He urged the governor to see to the provision of adequate security aides for traditional rulers in the state to prevent them from being easy targets of bandits and kidnappers.

Oba Akinruntan prayed God to give the late Olufon of Ifon wives, children of the deceased and the palace chiefs the fortitude to bear the painful and irreparable loss.

Late Oba Adeusi was shot last Thursday by suspected kidnappers around Elegbeka axis along Owo-1Ifon Highway.

He was confirmed dead at the Federal Medical Centre, Owo where he was rushed to.
