Monarchs appeal for sustenance of post-protests peace



Two traditional rulers in Ondo state have sued for sustenance of the peace that has returned to the state after the EndSARS protests which led to loss of lives and destruction of private and government facilities.

In a telephone interview with ORANGEFM’S Igbekele Ologun on the escalated Endsars protests across Nigeria, the monarchs said the youths should give government the chance to come up with measures that would finally lay to rest the agitations.

The Olubaka of Oka land Oba Adebori Adeleye and the Olukare of Ikare Oba Akadiri Momoh said efforts should be made by Community leaders to counsel the youth.

The traditional rulers also cautioned the youths against destroying property belonging to private individuals and government whenever they need Government’s attention, saying it would further worsen the Nigerian economy and create untold hardship for the citizens after the impasse.

They said both the state and the federal governments should listen to the agitations of the youths and put in place immediate measures that would assuage their feelings.

The monarchs however said they would not relent in their community engagements with the people on the need for them to always toe the path of peace for the overall progress and development of Ondo state.
