The Senator representing Kwara Central Senatorial District, Mallam Saliu Mustapha has condemned the brutal and senseless murder of HRH Oba Peter Olusegun Aremu-Cole,.
Senator Saliu Mustapha described late Oba Segun Aremu as a friendly, hospitable and responsible traditional ruler with whom he shared a close personal relationship until his demise.
According to him, His gruesome murder and the abduction of his family members is a sacrilege of our communal values and traditions.
The Senator however commended the Kwara State Government for its swift response to this tragic incident. The emergency security meeting held by Gov. AbdulRahman AbdulRazak and the rapid mobilization of security forces to ensure the safe return of the kidnapped Royal family members demonstrate a commendable commitment to the security of lives and property of the citizenry.
He therefore joins the Governor in charging our security agencies, including the local vigilante, not to relent in their pursuit of the perpetrators of this vile act.
We must apprehend the perpetrators and bring them to justice to send a clear message that such acts of violence and disregard for human life will not be tolerated in Kwara state.
The Senator calls upon constituents in Kwara Central and all people of good conscience across Kwara State to unite in solidarity and support for the Kwara State Government, the security agencies, the Ekiti Local Goverment Council, the community of Koro in Ekiti LGA and most importantly the bereaved family of the deceased.
“To the family of the departed monarch and the community he served, I offer my deepest condolences. May the Almighty grant them the fortitude to bear this irreplaceable loss and may the soul of the departed find eternal peace,” the Senator said.
