Residents and the family members of the monarch protested at the Governor’s Office in Abeokuta to demand justice.
The protesters, led by a friend of the monarch, Gbeminiyi Sotade, urged the Commissioner of Police, the State House of Assembly and the Alake of Egbaland, Oba Adedotun Gbadebo to ensure due diligence in the investigation to unravel the killers.
Sotade submitted a petition to Governor Dapo Abiodun, represented by the Director of Chieftaincy Affairs at the State Ministry of Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Adesoji Adewuyi.
The governor assured the protesters of justice, saying his government would not tolerate any act of criminality in any part of the state.
