Calls for the probe of two killed #EndSARS protesters and the need to watch out for bad elements with hidden personal agendas in the protest.”
The Oluwo of Iwoland, HRM Oba Abdulrosheed Adewale Akanbi, has described the attack on Governor Gboyega Oyetola of Osun State as barbaric while he calls on protesting youth to be law abiding.
Osun state Government under Governor Oyetola is doing great when it comes to good governance and I implore the governor to keep leading in a transparent, accountable and prudent manner as always. Everyone in the state knows that Governor Oyetola has been a great administrator in the history of this state and does not deserve this kind of disrespect and intent to take his life.
He said the circumstances that warranted the attack was questionable. The monarch said, “no one, not even recalcitrant leaders deserves such attack, talkless the listening Governor Oyetola.”
Oba Akanbi equally called for the probe of the two persons killed, urging the police to give true picture as against diverse stories surrounding their death.
Oluwo, who had earlier warned the protesting youth against likely hijack of the protest by hoodlums advised patriotic protesters to exercise caution to avoid mistaken of identity.
The monarch described Oyetola as a peace loving governor who cares for his citizen, who doesn’t deserve an assassination attempt.
He appealed to protesting youth most especially in Osun to act within the ambit of law to protect human lives and properties.
A statement by the Monarch’s press secretary, Alli Ibraheem, reads “As a patriotic ambassador of The State of Virtues, the ethos must always be demonstrated in us. Many state governors have joined the protest and addressed protesters. There was no cases of attack. I’m sure many governors will still address their citizens on the same issue. What credit have hoodlums given to Osun ?”
“The attack on Governor Gboyega Oyetola is Undeserving and barbaric. In all sincerity, he is a leader by merit. He is a political material that should be encouraged. His intention for Osun is superb. The protesters should avoid impersonation and drive out touts amongst them. If they are to be taken serious, they should stay focused. I can see derailment”
“The incident that led to the two who died in Osogbo yesterday should be probed by the police. There are different versions of report resulting to their death. We need a true, holistic investigation. May their souls rest in peace”
“I want to appeal to the protesting youth to act within the ambit of law in the interest of the state that our fathers laboured to build. What you can’t construct, don’t destroy it”
