The Spokesman of the House of Representatives, Akin Rotimi,
on Tuesday, broke down on the floor of the House, while moving a motion on the
killing of two traditional rulers in his state.
Rotimi moved a motion of urgent public importance on the
killings in Ekiti State.
However, while presenting the motion, emotion betrayed him,
as he broke down in tears.
He revealed that the traditional rulers, namely the Onimojo
of Imojo Ekiti, Oba Olatunji Samuel Olusola, and the Elesun of Esun Ekiti, Oba
David Babatunde Ogunsola, were killed on Monday by unknown gunmen.
Rotimi further stated that apart from the traditional
rulers, “a commercial driver was killed between Ayedun and Ayebode by armed
bandits, and just yesterday (Monday), a school bus loaded with students was
hijacked in Emure Ekiti, and their whereabouts still remain unknown.”
The House, therefore, resolved to urge the Chief of Army
Staff to redeploy the military to the outpost along the Oke-Ako area to enhance
security and forestall a repeat of these beastly acts.
Also, the House asked the Inspector General of Police, the
Commandant General of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps and other

The House also observed a minute of silence in honour of the
