PostSubject: Akure royal rumble: Drama as deposed Deji resurrects   2015-12-04, 11:07

IT could best be described as a royal rumble. The two royal gladiators are
from the same Osupa ruling house in the Akure Chieftaincy stool. Observers
of happenings in Akure, the Ondo state capital as regards the stool of the
paramount traditional ruler of the ancient town ( Deji of Akureland) would
agree that it’s an understatement to say that the junt through the
metropolis recently by the deposed and banished Oba, Prince Adepoju
Adesina barely five years after his banishment by the state government
caused anxiety and sent cold jitters down the spines of indigenes and non-
indigenes of the ancient town.
Prince Adesina first public appearance since he went out of circulation in
year 2010 to serve his punishment’ caught many unaware including the
new Deji Oba Aladetoyinbo Aladelusi and the Akure Council of Chiefs.
Tension rose to a feverish level as the deposed Oba appeared in public five
years after he went underground following his sack and banishment to a
remote village in Owo area of the state capital after he publicly assaulted
one of his wives who incidentally is now late, Olori Bolanle.
Installation of the new Deji
After his banishment for one year, the deposed Prince relocated abroad in
2011 only to resurface and this in no small measure unsettled the serene
Akure community. His appearance according to findings, was at the instance
of a matter he instituted against the new traditional Oba Aladelusi and the
state government challenging his removal by government and the
installation of the new Deji.
But after the case was adjourned by the trial Judge at the State high Court,
Justice Olasehinde Kumuyi till December 8, the deposed Prince decided to
stir the hornets nets by walking through the street giving the impression
that the case in court had been decided in his favour.
While walking the streets with his supporters, ”convoy of vehicles trailed Prince Adepoju was adorned in the paraphernalia of a king with the
exception of wearing a crown.
So his sudden “resurrection” and street walk through the Akure metropolis
raised some serious fears across the community that he may be on his
way back to the throne. He has dragged the state government to court
challenging his alleged wrongful removal from his ancestral throne.
Timely intervention of detectives from the state Police Command saved the
situation as youths sympathetic to the new Oba were poised for a
showdown with the Prince and his co- street walkers. Sensing a possible
breakdown of law and order and disruption of peace in the state capital, the
“ street walking” prince was invited for questioning and warned against re-
Tempers as speculation was rife that the deposed Oba had been arrested
by the Police. But this was denied by the state Police authorities.
Ironically, while the deposed Prince was walking the street to announce his
second coming, the new Deji together with his Council of Akure Chiefs and
some Clergymen converged on St David’s Cathedral, Ijomu in Akure for their
yearly prayer session tagged “ Akure Prays 2015”. The yearly prayer session
was to thank God for the peace in the town and to solicit for its sustenance
in subsequent years. This meeting was almost marred by the action of the
deposed Oba.
News of the pubic appearance of the deposed Deji created apprehension,
coupled with the rumour from his camp that he has won the case at the
Court challenging his sack and was marching to the palace. However, the
action of Prince Adepoju has earned him several punches and kicks from
his former subjects and stake holders across the state capital.
Infact, the Akure Council of Chiefs led by the Lisa of Akureland, traditional
Prime Minister of the town, High Chief James Olusoga has warned him
against such a “shameful walk” again. In what looked like a combination of
forces to deal decisively with him, leaders in Akure Community and the
council of Chief have insisted that he remains deposed and his reign thus
consigned to history.
They described the street walk of Prince Adepoju as “ a show of
shame”. Addressing a Press Conference on the stir caused by the deposed
Oba they however warned of dire consequences if he repeats his “ shameful
action on Dec 8 when his case was adjourned to.”
Spokesman of the Community who is a former Ambassador to Greece, Prof
Olu Agbi warned that if the deposed Prince” does it again we will show him
that we cannot only bark but also bite. “ We will not tolerate any action that
will bring Akure to disrepute once again. We hereby warned Prince Adepoju
to conduct himself properly if he has to continue to prosecute his case.
“ Presenting his case does not include coming into the heart of the town in
order to foment crisis and trouble. “ If he does so again, we might be
unable to restrain our people in showing him and his never do well backers
that Akure people cannot only bark but they can also bite.
“ We state here with all sense of responsibility that Akure Community will
not only bark but bite harder against anyone who tries to stifle our progress
and truncate the peace. We currently enjoy. What Prince Adepoju did on
that day is tantamount to saying that Akure has two kings. Never, never and
never. Adepoju has been deposed and it will remain so.”
The leaders said it took the personal intervention of the reigning Deji of
Akureland Oba Aladetoyinbo Aladelusi to prevent breakdown of law and order
that day the deposed Oba staged a street walk across the metropolis. Prof
Agbi recalled that “ it will be an understatement to state here and now that
the reign of the deposed Deji brought untold and unprecedented
embarrassment to the entire Akure Community.”
They listed many of the” sins” of Prince Adesina which according to them
consigned his reign to the “ dustbin of history” and prayed against such re -
occurrence. They called on the state government and security operatives in
the state to prevail on him to stop “ stirring the hornets nets and conduct
himself properly as he continues his case on December 8 .
Prof Agbi said: “ We cherish and wish to maintain the age long peace that
had been reigning in Akure Kingdom. Indeed Akure deserves the current
peace for its development and progress.
Reacting, the deposed monarch’s elder brother, Prince Ibukun Adesina said
his brother did not break any law by coming to Akure, adding that
permission was obtained from security operatives within the state before
the Prince made the public appearance.
Public appearance
According to him, “he is challenging his illegal removal by the state
government in court and he has served out the banishment placed on him
by the government and therefore has every right to come to Akure. “After
serving out his banishment, he went abroad to receive medical attention.
He came home to attend to his case, meet his lawyers and his family
“Those making allegations against him are those who supported his illegal
removal and they have no interest of the Akure people at heart. “The
relevant authorities were aware that Adesina Adepoju is free to come to
Akure and we are determined to ensure that he returns to his forefathers’
The members of the Akure Council of Chiefs who attending the briefing

Chief James Olusoga, the Odopetu of Akureland High Chief Micheal Falade,
