Ogun monarch’s assassination: Abiodun vows to hunt down perpetrators

 Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun, has condemned the killing of Oba Ayinde Odetola, the traditional ruler of Agodo in Ewekoro Local Government Area of the state.

The king and three of his workers were assassinated on Monday by yet-to-be-identified hoodlums.

Declaring that his administration would not tolerate a breach of peace and harmony, the governor in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Kunle Somorin, Tuesday directed the security agencies to immediately fish out the killers for prosecution.

He commiserated with the family of the late monarch and the residents of the town, assuring them that killers would not go unpunished for carrying out that heinous act.

The governor, who described the incident as unfortunate, noted that politics, land, and chieftaincy matters should not lead to self-help and killings.

“Security of lives and property top our responsibilities as a government and we will not allow people to take laws into their hands.

“To those threatening the peace of our state, we will stop at nothing to fish them out, prosecute them and mete out the full wrath of the law on them. 

“We have zero tolerance for these ignoble conducts. Politics, land, and chieftaincy disputes are no excuses for people to take laws into their hands. All hirelings, parents, and guardians should call their wards to order,” the statement quoted the governor.
