Unknown shooters on Monday assassinated the Olu of Agodo, in Ewekoro Local Government Area of Ogun State, Oba Ayinde Odetola.
It was gathered that Oba Odetola was eliminated and burnt beyond recognition instantly he drove into the community around 11 am.
DAILY POST discovered that crisis started in Agodo after Odetola of Ake dynasty was elected as the traditional ruler of the town, an advancement the Owu individuals supposedly rejected, firmly insisting that any person from Ake can not be their king.
While the source of the killing is yet to be determined, a sibling of the late king, Mrs Adenike Akintade, stated a brother to the late monarch was just recently killed.
“I have actually simply been discharged from hospital early this morning, only to begin mourning the ruthless assassination of my brother.
“Kabiesi called me on Saturday, advising me to minimize my activities, saying tension could contribute to my illness.
“He lost his more youthful sibling to the imbroglio some months earlier; the young man was butchered by the so-called thugs. Today, Kabiesi disappears, what a world”, Akintade regreted.
Confirming the incident, Ogun cops spokesperson, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said it was just the conventional ruler that was eliminated, exposing claims that his kids or aides were also killed in the incident.
Oyeyemi stated the queen was burnt in his automobile after he was murdered.
According to him, the state Commissioner of Police, Lanre Bankole, was at the scene of the event on Monday to assess the scenario.
He added that homeowners of Agodo have actually deserted the town after the incident.
“Yes, it is true. Just the Oba was killed. He was burnt in his automobile. The Commissioner of Police was there today. The location has been deserted as we speak. We are tracking the criminals and we shall bring them to book,” Oyeyemi stated.
