There is tension in Ikirun.

A middle-aged man known as Lukman Omoola has been killed.

A building inside the Akinrun palace has also been set ablaze.

This reportedly occurred today when some traditionalists allegedly led by the police and Amotekun operatives wanted to force their way into the palace in an attempt to lead the new Akinrun, Oba Yinusa Olalekan Akadiri inside the palace.

OSUN DEFENDER gathered that the traditionalists, police and Amotekun operatives were resisted by some youths who have been protesting against Akadiri’s appointment ever since he was announced.

The palace had been inaccessible for Oba Akadiri, as it was barricaded with iron bar. The palace entrance had also been adorned with spiritual objects.

It was gathered that the police and Amotekun operatives were shooting sporadically when they stormed the palace entrance.

Omoola, one of the protesters, who was hit by the bullet, died instantly.

When contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer, Osun Command, Mrs Yemisi Opalola, said she was yet to receive briefing on the matter.
