Alake condoles with Ekiti over killing of monarch, abduction of primary school pupils

The Minister of Solid Minerals Oladele Alake has extended his condolence to the people and government of Ekiti State over the killing of two traditional rulers in the state.

Two monarchs, the Onimojo of Imojo- Ekiti, Oba Olatunde Samuel Olusola and the Elesun of Esun-Ekiti, Oba David Babatunde Ogunsola were killed on Monday while returning from a security meeting.

In a statement personally signed by Alake on Tuesday, the minister condemned this unfortunate incident.

He also urges the security agencies to fish out the assailants and ensure they face the full wrath of the law until justice is served.

“On behalf of my family, I send our condolences to Governor Abiodun Oyebanji; the government and people of Ekiti State, especially the families and subjects of our departed kings.

“In the same vein, i call on the Police high command and the Department of State Security to rescue the primary school pupils from Emure-Ekiti that were kidnapped on their way from school at Eporo-Ekiti.

“There is no doubt that this is a very distressing moment for the people of Ekiti State and Nigerians in general, but the Federal Government under the leadership of President Bola Tinubu will continue to work very hard to improve security situation in our country,” Alake said.
