Kwara PDP condemns monarch’s murder


The Kwara State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has condemned the gruesome killing of a revered traditional ruler and retired Army General, Oba Segun Aremu, the Olukoro of Koro in Ekiti Local Government Area of the state and the abduction of his wife and two family members by unknown gunmen.

A statement released by Mr. Olusegun Olusola Adewara, the Publicity Secretary of the party, expressed deep concern over the escalating insecurity in Kwara communities, noting that the state is gradually sloughing its peaceful status to a volatile state.

“The gruesome killing of Oba Segun Aremu and the abduction of his wife and other family members by yet-to-be-identified gunmen is a stark reminder of the deteriorating security situation in our state.

“The PDP is disheartened and shocked by this unfortunate incident and extends our heartfelt condolences to the Koro community, Ekiti people, and the traditional institution in the state.

“Our party stands in solidarity with the Koro community home and abroad at this difficult time and calls on security agencies to intensify efforts at rescuing those abducted unhurt from captivity while bringing the perpetrators of this dastard act into timely justice,” it said.

The PDP queried where the huge security vote of the state was being spent and advised Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq in the interest of the state to immediately shop for experienced security experts that can help provide strategies capable of bringing this ugly incident to a halt.

“While commiserating with the Koro people for the tragic loss of the king, we pray for the safe return of those abducted and commend the gallant officers who are deployed to comb the forests in search of those hostages even in the face of poor motivation,” the statement added
