Olusegun Ariyo

More Reaction has continued to trail the killing of Ondo monarch even as sultan of Sokoto decries level of insecurity in the country while describing the north as the worst place to live, in something that bandits had become daring, entering people’s house, kidnapping them in broad daylight.

Not done yet, the killing of the Ondo monarch, the sultan, Alhaji Abubakar sa’ad has equally called on traditional rulers in the country to always sensitise political leaders on the need to ensure effective security nationwide

The sultan, while speaking in Ibadan on Friday at the fifth coronation anniversary lecture of the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi lamented the spate of insecurity in the country.

Adeusi was said to be on his way from a meeting in Akure in his official Car around 4 pm when he was accosted by Gunmen and shot

Checks reveal that no one else was attacked in the car and no item was stolen.

 Urban Express-News gathered he was kidnapped before brutally murdered by the assailants.

His corpse, it was learnt, had been conveyed to the Federal Medical Centre.

Also, the Olubadan of Ibadan, Oba Saliu Adetunji, in an interview with one of our correspondents through his media aide, Mr Adebola Oloko, said the murder of the Olufon was a wake-up call to the authorities to ensure the security of lives and property.

Meanwhile, Yoruba socio-cultural organisation, Afenifere, on Friday, condemned the killing of a first-class traditional ruler in Ondo State, the Olufon of Ifon, Oba Israel Adeusi, while calling on the President Mohammadu Buhari to secure the country.

Afenifere, in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Yinka Odumakin, titled ‘Olufon’s murder and total insecurity,’ called on Buhari and the governors to “get up and secure Nigeria.”

The group said, “This gruesome murder is coming as we are still recovering from the brutal murder of the daughter of Afenifere leader, Funke Olakunrin, for which some Fulani herdsmen are currently on trial.

“There have been other multiple murders across Yoruba land, which the police have not been able to resolve. It has reached a point that only very prominent killings get reported in this state of total insecurity in a failed state. The killing of any citizen worries us, how much more the first-class monarch.

“We ask the police to fish out the killers of Olufson. To President Buhari, it’s a time to get up and secure Nigeria and allow a federal architecture that promotes homeland security. Being the Commander-in-Chief can’t be a title with no responsibility. Why are we constructing roads to the Niger Republic, when our own roads are literally death traps?”, the statement read
