Yourba Nation activist Sunday Adeyemo, better known as Sunday Igboho, has urged the federal government to bring those responsible for the deaths of two Ekiti State traditional rulers to justice.
On Monday, while traveling between Ipapo and Oke Ake, two prominent figures from Ekiti, Oba Babatunde Ogunsakin, and Imojo, Oba Olatunde Olusola, were brutally murdered by assailants who are yet to be identified.
Nevertheless, in a statement released on Thursday, Igboho emphasised the need to identify and punish those responsible for the tragic murders of the two Ekiti Monarchs.

“My thoughts also go out to the affected families and the innocent school children kidnapped in Eporo Ekiti of Emure Local Government Area of the state. This sorrowful incident not only signifies a profound loss for the Yoruba people but also casts a sombre shadow on our identity as a peace-loving community. Such heinous acts undermine the security and progress of the state and other states grappling with this menace.
“I categorically condemn these barbaric murders and urgently call on both the state and Federal Governments to take decisive action in bringing the perpetrators to justice. We demand the immediate apprehension of the murderers and a thorough search of the surrounding woods and forests to root out those hiding to perpetrate such evil deeds.
“It is my solemn appeal and encouragement to government at all levels to allow us to mobilise local community vigilantes to complement all security agencies in protecting our people. This is very painful. Our people deserve to live. All those connected to such wicked acts, be it for politics, criminality, or sheer wickedness, should know that the end is near.”
