Slain Ogun monarch’s family, community demand justice

The family of the slain monarch of Agodo community in the Ewekoro Local Government Area of Ogun State, Oba Ayinde Odetola, Sunday demanded justice.

 The monarch and three of his aides were killed and their corpses burnt to ashes by gunmen January 24 following a chieftaincy dispute in the community.

 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.
