By Sijuwade Adekunle

Lagos State Deputy Governor, Dr Idiat Oluranti Adebule, has appealed to the abductors of the Oniba of Ibaland, Oba Yushau Goriola Oseni, to ensure safe release of the aged monarch, who was abducted by gunmen on Saturday night in his palace in Iba, Lagos.

Dr Adebule made the appeal on Tuesday while addressing journalists on the ugly incident.

Adebule, who sounded optimistic that the Oba would be rescued soon and be re-united with his family and subjects, noted that as custodians of traditional norms and institution, royal fathers deserve honour and respects from all the citizens.

She said the state government was working hard with various security operatives to ensure safe rescue of the abducted Oba, appealing to his kidnappers to remember that the monarch has various duties to perform in ensuring peace and tranquility in the town.

Adebule also urged law enforcement agencies to step up their duties and ensure that the monarch is rescued unhurt.

“To the law enforcement agencies, we know they are trying, which is why we have being enjoying peace in Lagos State, but they need to step up their intelligence gathering to fast track the rescue of the Oba”

According to a statement by Odusina Akeem from the Public Affairs Section of her office, the deputy governor also appealed to Nigerians and the people of Lagos State to support and assist the police command with useful information on the abduction.

She said the state government would continue to sensitize the public on security issues and give necessary support to law enforcement agencies as they work to secure the lives and properties of the people.

While expressing sympathy with the family, friends and subjects of the abducted monarch, Adebule condemned other instances of kidnappings, rape, maiming and killing of innocent citizens across the country..
