Oluwo condemns Olufon’s murder, calls for probe

The Oluwo from the land of Iwo, Oba Abdulrasheed Akanbi, has called for the death penalty for kidnappers in the state to help end the kidnapping.

The Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Abdulrosheed Adewale Akanbi, condemned the murder of Olufon of Ifon, Oba Adegoke Adeusi, and asked the security agency to uncover the perpetrators.

Oluwo in a statement from his spokesperson, Alli Ibrahim, on Friday, described the incident as sacrilegious, as he called for a proper investigation into the cowardly act in order to reveal the identities of the killers and bring them to justice.

He said that the murder of a Yoruba monarch constitutes a threat that must be nipped in the bud before it degenerates into a security threat, therefore the security agency must work hard to reveal the identity of the perpetrators.

Oluwo described Olufon as an asset to the traditional institution, saying both traditional and police investigations must be deployed to bring justice to the culprits.

It says: “The murder of Olufon of Ifon, Oba Adegoke Adeusi, was an abomination. Monarchs are deadly, but the cold murder of a king is sacrilege. The perpetrators are enemies of Yoruba tradition and culture. I have no doubt that the spirit of the crowns venerated in the Yoruba land will expose them. “

“While I pity the immediate family of the deceased and the entire traditional institution, I want to accuse the Nigerian police of conducting a high-powered investigation to reveal the identities of the perpetrators.

“The late Olufon of Ifon in Ondo State, HRM Oba Adegoke Adeusi, was an asset to the traditional institution. His emptiness would be felt. As such, those who killed him must be revealed by any means to deter others. “
