The traditional ruler of Iwoland, Oba Abdulrosheed Akanbi, has said he cannot be kidnapped or assassinated by bandits or any criminals.
Oluwo said the monarchs have become targets of kidnappers because they rely on their powers for protection, as he added God has been his protector.
Speaking with journalists in his palace in Iwo, the royal father said continued reliance of traditional rulers on deities would not guarantee safety but bring dishonour to the thrones.
“I am telling you right here that no one would dare attempt to kidnap or mark me for assassination,” he said.
“I am covered by God’s protection, not by any deity or gods. I am using this opportunity to call on my colleague monarchs to stop putting their hopes on deities and return everything to the Almighty God whom they represent.”
Oba Akanbi said this at the time Nigerians are concerned about the three monarchs that lost their lives in the hands of bandits in Ekiti and Kwara states in the past weeks.
Daily Trust reported early February that two Yoruba monarchs were abducted and killed by kidnappers in Ekiti.
They were Oba David Ogunsakin, the Elesun of Esun-Ekiti; and Oba Olatunde Olusola, the Onimojo of Omojola-Ekiti.
A few days later another king in Kwara, Peter Aremu, Onikoro of Koro-Ekiti in Ekiti LGA of Kwara state, was murdered at his palace.
