January 25, (THEWILL) – Governor Dapo Abiodun of Ogun State on Tuesday vowed to bring down the full wrath of the law on killers of the Alagodo of Agodo, Oba Ayinde Odetola, in Ewekoro Local Government Area of the State.

Unknown gunmen had on Monday at about 11am attacked the monarch and three of his friends, whom they later burnt in his car beyond recognition.

Abiodun, in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary Kunle Somorin, condemned the gruesome killing of the traditional ruler and his cohorts.

The governor however directed the security agencies to immediately fish out the killers of the monarch and bring them to book.

He noted that his administration would not tolerate breach of peace and harmony being enjoyed in the state, insisting that he will deal decisively with the perpetrators by meting out the full wrath of the law on them.

Abiodun, who described the incident as unfortunate, stated that politics, land and chieftaincy matters should not attract descent to self-help and killings.

He warned that hirelings, parents and guardians should call their wards to order and no plea for clemency will be tolerated for acts of brigandage, murder and illegal conducts.

The governor said “Security of lives and property tops our responsibilities as a government and we will not allow people to take laws into their hands.”

“To those threatening the peace of our state, we will stop at nothing to fish them out, prosecute them and mete out the full wrath of the law on them.”

“We have zero-tolerance for these ignoble conducts. Politics, land and chieftaincy disputes are no excuses for people to take laws into their hands. All hirelings, parents and guardians should call their wards to order.”

“OP-MESA, Joint Internal Security Task Force, Amotekun, vigilantes groups, DSS Police and NSCDC are not mere toothless bulldogs. They are armed and deployed to strike agent provocateurs”, he added.

He, however, commiserated with the family of the late monarch and the residents of Agodo town, assuring them that killers would not go unpunished for carrying out that heinous act.
