treated with great lack of respect and abuses, we maintained our peace is of national interest in this case, with the hope that the government, both at the state and federal level, take measures to prevent this evil development, unfortunately, our expectations in this regard have been frustrated.

“As a result of the above, more kidnappings by these Fulani criminals continue unabated, many citizens have been kidnapped mainly in the Local Government Area of ​​Akure North, with the corresponding results that farmland has been abandoned under this premise.

Today, the main kidnapping activities abound in Oba-Ile, Iju, Itaogbolu, Irese, Osi and even the fringes of the Akure metropolis, these are still unacceptable and inexcusable for us as a Kingdom and, therefore, demand that the government begins to implement actions that will stop this. trend immediately.

Ambassador Oluwateru added that “While we mourn a distinguished daughter, Mrs. Olufunke Olakunri, we must say that we have now realized that Nigeria is really in serious trouble, with diminishing capacities to fulfill its responsibilities towards citizens. .

“Therefore, now we see these unpleasant developments through a completely new panorama, which forces us to begin to develop security models that guarantee the arrest of this malignant tendency and defend us as a community from now on”.

“It is a generally accepted fact that the people of Akure are very hospitable, that they receive people from diverse backgrounds and places in our communities and this practice lasts a long time, therefore, we ask all residents to respect life, law and order.

“We appreciate the peace and tranquility that until now reigned in our Kingdom, even in our State and nation, and we hope that the constituted authorities are alive to fulfill their responsibilities enshrined in the Constitution, the proper fulfillment of these responsibilities is the only one guarantee against Anarchy in our nation.

“We also warn that anarchy has the capacity to make us implement self-help strategies, since self-preservation is the first law of nature.
