Odo-Oro-Ekiti, a community in Ikole Local Government Area of Ekiti state, was thrown into mourning as its traditional ruler, Oba Gbadebo Ogunsakin, was stabbed to death earlier today.

Some residents, who spoke with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), said the traditional ruler was stabbed with a knife by a man suspected to be insane after a meeting of the traditional council.

A resident of the community, Mr Henry Olu, said the assailant was from the same royal family as the slain traditional ruler.

Olu said the assailant was earlier seen before the council meeting sitting on the throne and was chased away. The monarch was stabbed by the assailant while he was attempting to enter his vehicle after the council meeting.

Another resident, who did not want his name mentioned, said:

”All we heard was a cry for help from the traditional ruler’s driver shortly after the council meeting.

“On getting there, we saw our traditional ruler in a pool of his blood with a knife in the chest. We tried rushing him to the hospital, but Oba Ogunsakin gave up the ghost.”
