The abducted Ondo State monarch, Oba Sunday Daodu, Oniya of Iyani, regained his freedom on Tuesday after four days in captivity.
The monarch arrived his palace at exactly 8.00 p.m. in company of his two colleagues, Olubaram of Ibaram, Oba Olusegun Atibioke and the Owa of Ogbagi-Akoko, Oba Victor Olasehinde.
Youth, elders and women danced round the town to thank God for safe arrival of their monarch.
The two traditional rulers urged the state government to provide adequate security for royal fathers in the state.
The state Governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu (SAN), congratulated Oba Daodu on his safe return home.
Akeredolu, who hailed the security agencies in the state for their efforts in ensuring the release of the monarch, said his administration is determined to make the state unsafe for criminally-minded people.
In a statement issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Segun Ajiboye, the governor assured people of the state of his administration’s commitment to their safety.
