"What my husband told me before he was killed" - Widow of murdered Ekiti Monarch speaks

The wife of a monarch killed by suspected herders has revealed her husband’s last words.

Yetunde Ogunsakin, the widow of the ruler of Esun Ekiti in Ajoni, Oba Babatunde Ogunsakin, confirmed her husband’s death on Monday.

The perpetrators killed Oba Ogunsakin of Ikole Local Government Area of Ekiti State and Onimojo of Imojo-Ekiti, Oba Olatunde Samuel Olusola, from Oye Local Government Area of the state, while two others, Alara of Ara-Ekiti, Oba Adebayo Fatoba Ikole, fled the kidnappers den.

During an interview with media outlet AIT, the monarch’s widow said that her husband had phoned to say he was hungry and should prepare a dinner before arriving at his castle.

Yetunde Ogunsakin said that she felt concerned after many hours and decided to phone the traditional ruler, but he did not respond.

She said, “He called me when he reached Ajowa that he was coming, that he was hungry, and I should prepare something for him. Ajowa to this place, I was not checking time, that it is not supposed to take more than one hour. Getting to one hour, one hour plus, I was calling his phone. He did not pick.”
Also speaking on the monarch’s demise, a community leader from Esun Ekiti, Chief Niyi Ojo, said, “I was shocked when I was called around 4:30 to be informed that he has been attacked by assailants and that he was killed in the process with a fellow Kabieyesi, Onimojo of Imojo.”
