A traditional ruler has been reported dead after he was stabbed to death by a mentally unstable man in Odo-Oro-Ekiti, a community in Ikole Local Government Area of Ekiti state.

According to report, the monarch Oba Gbadebo Ogunsakin, was stabbed to death with a knife earlier today by the man suspected to be insane after a meeting of the traditional council.

While speaking on the sad incident, a resident of the community, identified as Mr Henry Olu, who disclosed that the assailant was from the same royal family as the slain traditional ruler, said that the assailant was earlier seen before the council meeting sitting on the throne and was chased away.

He added that the monarch was stabbed by the man while he was attempting to enter his vehicle after the council meeting. While also speaking on the incident, another resident, who pleaded for anonymity 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.”
