The President condoled with the families and subjects of the traditional rulers, Gov. Biodun Oyebanji, and the people of Ekiti State on this deeply agonising development.
In the same vein, Tinubu directed the immediate rescue of pupils and teachers of a private nursery and primary school in Emure Ekiti kidnapped around Eporo-Ekiti area of the State.
He stated that security of life and property is the primary responsibility of government, assuring Nigerians that the nation’s security architecture is being robustly fortified for better and expected outcomes.
