Ogun Monarch burnt to ashes in his car

Only the Oba was killed. He was burnt in his car. The Commissioner of Police was there today. The place has been deserted as we speak. But we are trailing the perpetrators and we shall bring them to book,” Oyeyemi stated.

Gunmen killed Oba Ayinde Odetola, the Olu of Agodo in Ogun State’s Ewekoro Local Government Area, on Monday.
According to reports, Oba Odetola was slain and burned beyond recognition as soon as he drove into the village at 11 a.m.

We learnt that crisis began in Agodo after Odetola of Ake dynasty was elected as the traditional ruler of the town, a development the Owu people reportedly rejected, insisting that anybody from Ake cannot be their king.
While the root cause of the killing is yet to be ascertained, a sister of the late monarch, Mrs Adenike Akintade, said a brother to the late monarch was recently killed.
