“I share in the pains of this difficult time, of all our royal fathers, and of all the people of Ikale land, at home and in the diaspora, for these pernicious and reprehensible acts committed by the enemies of society. "Gen. Bajowa, Crown Prince of Ikale Territory, however, pledged support to the government to rehabilitate damaged properties.

Ikale Land's Jagunmolu also suggested the Ikale Summit, where the Ikale Trust Fund will be set up to enable patriotic sons and daughters of Ikale at home and in the diaspora to make contributions to the noble cause.

"I implore our royal fathers and all Ikale sons and daughters not to be discouraged or discouraged by promoting the growth of our motherland, but to accept this unfortunate setback as a strong call for unity.
