Oba Adegoke Adeusi, the Olufon of Ifon under Ose Local Government Area Ondo State, has been killed.

Oba Adeusi was killed on Thursday evening by unknown gunmen suspected to be kidnappers around the Elegbeka axis of the town.

The monarch was said to be returning to his palace from Akure, the state capital, where he had gone to attend a meeting with other monarchs, when he was ambushed and killed.

A source who spoke in anonymity, said, “The king had earlier attended the meeting with all Obas in Akure and while on his way he was kidnapped which caused apprehension in the community.

“But while we were trying to ensure his rescue, we saw that he had already been killed by the kidnappers. It is very sad.”
