One of the siblings of the late traditional ruler who identified herself as, Chief (Mrs) Adenike Akintade, confirmed the killing.
She said: “I had just been discharged from hospital early this morning, only to start mourning the brutal assassination of my brother by 11 am. Kabiesi called me on Saturday, urging me to reduce my activities, saying stress could contribute to my illness.
“Oba Odetola lost his younger brother to the imbroglio some months ago; the young man was butchered by the so-called hoodlums, today, Kabiesi is no more, what a world.”
The State Police Public Relations Officer, Ogun Command, Abimbola Oyeyemi, confirmed the incident on Monday night.
Oyeyemi said the Commissioner of Police, Lanre Bankole, and the Special Security Adviser to Governor Dapo Abiodun, Olusola Subair had visited the town for an on-the-spot assessment of the situation.
