Gunmen have killed Peter Aremu, the Onikoro of Koro-Ekiti in
the Ekiti LGA of Kwara state.

 

The police command in the state confirmed the incident on
Thursday.

 

Ejire Adeyemi-Tohun, the police public relations officer (PRO)
for the state, said the gunmen also kidnapped his wife.

 

“The gunmen invaded the residence of the traditional ruler
in the evening and killed him and went away with his wife,” the police PRO

The spokesperson said some police personnel, led by the
divisional police officer (DPO) in Koro-Ekiti, visited the palace of the late
traditional ruler.

 

“They have begun investigations into the whereabouts of the
killers, as well as the abductors of the late king’s wife,” she said.
