Ile olujiEntrance to the Palace

The Ondo State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Patrick Dukumor, yesterday, said that timely intervention of the police saved the traditional ruler of the troubled Ile-Oluji, Oba Subulade Adedugbe, from being killed by the youths who were bent on sacking him from the palace.

Reading riot act to those he called trouble makers in the town, Dukumor said their intention was to kill the Oba and raze down his palace.

He pointed out that the protesters vented their anger on policemen when they could not carry out the devilish mission, attacking them with guns, cudgels, broken bottles, and other dangerous weapons, during the three-day violence.

Dukumor said the protesters provoked policemen deployed to restore peace in the town but they restrained themselves.

According t the commissioner, the DPO of Ile Oluji was not spared in the attack by the protesters who ignored all entreaties from him when he personally visited the town to address them, and from notable leaders of the town.

Dukumor stated that the police officer who was operated upon in Obafemi Awolowo University Teaching Hospital, is now stable and responding to treatment.

He added that 17 suspects already in police custody will be charged to court next week and vowed to bring those behind the public disturbances in the town to book.
