    Gunmen invade palace, kidnap Ekiti monarch

    Gunmen numbering about six on Thursday evening invaded the palace of Obadu of Ilemeso Ekiti in the Oye Ekiti Local Government Area of Ekiti State, Oba David Oyewumi, and abducted the traditional ruler.

    This came six days after gunmen waylaid and shot at the Elewu of Ewu Ekiti in the Ilejemeje Council Area of the state, Oba Adetutu Ajayi, along Ewu-Ayetoro Ekiti Road.

    Sources at Ilemeso said that the gunmen accessed the palace at about 8.30pm by scaling the fence before they began to shoot sporadically to scare the occupants.

    A source said, “In the process of shooting, they gained entrance into the bungalow where the traditional ruler and members of his family were.

    “The way they asked for the monarch showed that they really came for him and not any other person. Immediately they sighted him, they dragged him out of the palace and whisked him away”, the source said.

    The Police Public Relations Officer, Ekiti Command, Sunday Abutu, confirmed the incident, describing it as regrettable.

    He said, “Yes, it happened yesterday (Thursday) in his palace.

    “Meanwhile, necessary steps are being taken to rescue him and apprehend the culprits. We are on the trail of the abductors,” the PPRO added.

    Abutu said the gunmen stormed the palace with assorted guns, traumatised the occupants and kidnapped the monarch.
