President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has condemned the killings of two traditional rulers in Ekiti, the Onimojo of Imojo-Ekiti, Oba Olatunde Samuel Olusola, and the Elesun of Esun-Ekiti, Oba David Babatunde Ogunsola.

Tinubu also condemned the abduction of pupils and teachers around the Eporo-Ekiti area of the state as he ordered security agencies to rescue the victims immediately.

Ajuri Ngelale, the special adviser to the president on media & publicity, said this in a statement issued on Tuesday, January 30.

The statement reads: “It is with grief that President Bola Tinubu receives 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.

“President Tinubu condemns this mindless and brutal bloodletting and pledges that the perpetrators will not escape justice. 

“The President condoles with the families and subjects of the traditional rulers, Governor Biodun Oyebanji, and the people of Ekiti State on this deeply agonising development.

“In the same vein, the President directs the immediate rescue of pupils and teachers kidnapped around the Eporo-Ekiti area of the state.

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