ICYMI: Why I Killed Ekiti Monarch – Suspect



The suspect, who allegedly stabbed the traditional ruler of Odo Oro Ekiti, Oba Gbadebo Ogunsakin to death, has confessed to the crime.

He stated that he carried out the act to reclaim the throne.

The 40-year-old Omonoyi Ademola, who was said to be mentally unstable before the crime, said he never knew the Oba would die.

He claimed that the late Oba first attacked him when he visited the palace to pass important information to him.

He said that he was told by the spirits and his family that it was the turn of his clan to reign over the community, and based on this information he headed for the palace on the fateful day.

“I never went to the palace with the intention of killing the monarch,” NAN quoted him as saying.

Omoniyi explained that it was when the Oba heard of the message he brought, that he attacked him, claiming he did not know the monarch would die as a result of his retaliation.

Commissioner of Police, Bello Muhammed, who paraded Omoniyi along with 26 other suspects, told journalists that he did not believe Omoniyi was an insane person going by his conduct and actions so far.

According to him, it was illogical to think that a man said to be a mad person would kill a whole Oba with a knife and choose to escape into the bush and later travelled down to Ado Ekiti where he was later arrested.
