President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has expressed sadness over the news of the killing of two traditional rulers in Ekiti State, the Onimojo of Imojo-Ekiti, Oba Olatunde Samuel Olusola, and the Elesun of Esun-Ekiti, Oba David Babatunde Ogunsola.

Chief Ajuri Ngelale, Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Tuesday, January 30, 2024, stated President Tinubu condemned “this mindless and brutal bloodletting, and pledges that the perpetrators will not escape justice.”

The statement noted the Nigerian leader also condoled with the families and subjects of the traditional rulers, Governor Biodun Oyebanji, and the people of Ekiti State over the deeply agonising development.

Ngelale said President Tinubu equally directed the immediate rescue of pupils and teachers kidnapped around Eporo-Ekiti area of the South-West state.

“As security of lives and property is the primary responsibility of government, President Tinubu assures Nigerians that the country’s security architecture is being robustly fortified for better and expected outcomes,” the statement added.
