But Olugnon however in a statement by his media aide, Akin Alade which was made available to newsmen on Tuesday condemned the attack

Oba Alao noted that the youths disrespected the throne by attacking the royal place which was traditionally backed up.

He stressed that there are other ways the youth should have used in communicating their grievances.

He added, “I learnt the youths claimed to be angry because of the death of their colleague, but destroying royal Palace is an insult to the Yoruba tradition.

” The youths need to apologise to the royak father because what they did is an abberation in the Yoruba culture.”
