Oba Adedapo Tejuosho, the Osile Oke Ona of Egba¬land, has expressed that the challenges faced in Nigeria today is as a result of lack of fear and respect for God.

Airing his view on the present secu¬rity challenges and other issues in the country, the born again traditional ruler, quoting from the Holy Scriptures of the book of Proverbs 29 vs. 18, says “Where there is no prophecy my people perish,” says it is so unfortunate that Nigerian leaders are not being guided by the word of God.

He recalled that President Goodluck Jonathan had been warned not to contest in the 2011 election because he would not be allowed to govern the country well, but he refused to listen to the prophecy then.

The monarch urged leaders that for the sake of the lives lost in the past three years, it's enough there is need to make sacrifices for the nation. “I have said my own; I do not fear any¬body who cannot kill my body, as well as my soul. I only worry about the person who can kill both. That is what God has led me to say.”
