The Oluwo of Iwoland Oba Abdulrosheed Adewale Akanbi, yesterday called on Yoruba stakeholders to use the regional Amotekun to checkmate what he called the incessant traditional corruption and ritual killings. The royal father said politicians should be held responsible for trading their game with kidnapping.
In a statement by his press secretary, Alli Ibraheem, Oluwo said: “Amotekun as an institution should be made to fight traditional corruption most especially ritual killings consuming our children’s blood daily.
There is blood of innocent people in the street. It is a failure on the part of government, traditional institution and other stakeholders that no severe legislation is enacted to punish ritual killers and their accomplice” “I want to charge all the stakeholders to streamline the activities of Amotekun to prioritize checkmating of ritual killings to protect innocent lives and enact death penalty for any culprit caught killing human for rituals. I’m not happy with ritual killers.
“They are not human. Government should help us by enacting a law against ritual killers. Whether male or female, anyone killed by ritual killer is my children. It must stop. Human are not animals that you slaughter, killed and dismembered. It is an aberration. Such is never part of any culture. We should empower Amotekun to challenge such barbaric act.”
