Prominent traditional ruler and Ologotun of Ogotun-Ekiti, Oba Adebayo Adesanmi, has appealed to Governor Biodun Oyebanji to take proactive measures to secure and develop the border towns across the state.

Oba Adesanmi lamented that most of the Ekiti communities sharing borders with neighbouring states are bedeviled with recurrent cases of kidnapping and killings, while also groaning under the burden of bad roads and lack of public utilities.

The monarch, who spoke in Ogotun-Ekiti, at the weekend, during his coronation ceremony where prominent Nigerians were conferred with chieftaincy titles, said the town had a lot of lofty and remarkable potentials in agriculture that could add value to Ekiti if harnessed.

He, therefore, pleaded with Oyebanji to secure the town, which shares border with Ikeji and Owena in Osun State.
