The Ekiti State Council of Traditional Rulers on Friday called for the deployment of troops in the state following attacks and kidnapping of monarchs by gunmen.

The Chairman of the council and Alawe of Ilawe Ekiti, Oba Adebanji Alabi, made the call in a statement in Ado Ekiti on Friday.

Oba Alabi was reacting to the Thursday kidnap of Oba David Oyewumi, the Obadu of Ilemeso and the foiled kidnap of Oba Adetutu Ajayi, the Elewu of Ewu Ekiti.

He stressed the need to deploy troops to the state to assist the police in flushing out kidnappers and terrorists.

Ajibade described attacks and kidnap of royal fathers in the state as “embarrassing, worrisome and troubling’’.

He urged the police to swing into action and rescue the traditional ruler of Ilemeso Ekiti, Oba David Oyewumi, who was kidnapped on Thursday night.

The traditional ruler appealed to residents of the various communities in the state to give useful information on suspicious persons and movements.

  1. Your stupid governor because of his interest in becoming President in 2023 had refuse to implement the Anti – Open Grazing Law and had also refuse to allow Amotekun to work. What a sad sitation.

    Fayemi is a complete failure as a governor.

    Please ensure you support the creation of Oduduwa Republic now or continue to suffer in the hand of Hausa/Fulani bandits.

    The train for the creation of Oodua Nation is moving slowly to its eventual destination join now……..

  2. Troops from where? From the Fulani dominated Nigerian army? You South Westerners will continue to fool yourselves. The Nigerian army will always send soldiers of Northern extraction to the South and you know what that means. So intensify your agitation for ODUDUWA Republic. Free yourselves from this madness. The kidnappers are presumably Fulani herdsmen from North. Meaning………..
