Following last week’s protest by youths from Ibule, a community in Ifedore Local Government Area of Ondo State to the office of the Local Government Chairman of Ifedore, another mild form of protest again took place on Thursday, 14th November as youths from the community took their agitations to the Governor’s Office.
The youths led by one Victoria Olayiwola said they embarked on the visit to call for government’s intervention over planned imposition of a new king on the community.
Also, another person from the community who preferred anonymity revealed that the list sent by the kingmaker to the government has been doctored and the signature on it has been forged by another person.
Reacting, the Ondo State government promised the people that the present administration in the state will not interfere into their chieftancy matters.
Speaking on behalf of the State Governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu at the Government House in Akure the Ondo State capital, the Ondo State House of Assembly Speaker, Hon. David Oleyelogun said that the government will investigate the matter and take appropriate action.
He also charged the people of the community to exercise patience and allow peace to reign in the community.
