The renowned Christian cleric admitted that the country is now in a war it cannot win by ammunition and human wisdom.

He, therefore, assured the governor of his constant prayers both for the state and the country.

The pastor's promise:

“We are praying for this state because we are concerned that even the institution of Obaship is no longer considered sacred by these bandits. For a Yoruba boy like myself, that is heart-rendering.
“And I can assure you that we are crying to the Lord of Hosts, the one who has never lost a war, that he will fight this battle for us and give us victory very soon."

Earlier, there was a palpable tension in the Oye local government area of Ekiti over the abduction of the Obadu of Ilemeso-Ekiti, Oba David Oyewumi.

The Elewu of Ewu, in Ilemeje local government area, Oba Adetutu Ajayi, had escaped the kidnapper’s ambush a week ago.

Legit.ng gathered that Oba Oyewumi was said to have been kidnapped in his palace by gunmen who scaled the fence, shot sporadically into the air and made away with him.

The state police public relations officer, Sunday Abutu, confirmed the incident, saying, “it happened yesterday in his palace.”

Commenting on the fearful trend, Muhammad Bukhari, a social commentator from the University of Benin, said the traditional monarchs are being attacked because they work with politicians, most of whom have lost their value in their country.

Bukhari said:

"They no longer regard kings in Nigeria like before because they frolick with politicians. Just few that still have value."
