Murder of Ondo monarch against Yoruba tradition, custom – Ekiti Obas

The Ekiti State Council of Traditional Rulers said on Saturday the killing of a first-class monarch in the neighbouring Ondo State by unidentified gunmen was worrisome and against the Yoruba tradition and custom.

The council, in a statement issued in Ado Ekiti by the Alaawe of Ilawe Ekiti, Oba Adebanji Ajibade Alabi, described the manner of the Ondo monarch’s death as most unfortunate and regrettable.

According to the council, the death of Oba Adegoke Adeusi, the Olufon of Ifon, on November 26 was shocking and called for concern.
