Deposed Wife-Beating Akure Monarch, Pleading For Reinstatement, Sends 18-Page Apology To Governor Mimiko

Olori Bolanle
By SaharaReporters, New York

The deposed former Deji of Akure Kingdom, Oluwadare Adepoju Adesina, has written an emotional letter of consideration to the Ondo state government to reinstate him as the paramount ruler.

Mr. Adepoju was deposed after this website revealed his battery of his wife, Olori Bolanle, in May 2010.   His battered wife took ill and subsequently died in July 2011.  Mr. Adepoju then relocated to the United Kingdom.

In the letter, obtained exclusively by SaharaReporters through his lawyer, Barrister Olusola Oke, the deposed Deji appealed to Governor Olusegun Mimiko, for whom he claimed to have worked tirelessly during his election campaign, to consider his plea.

"I must passionately plead with your Excellence to remember how well I stood behind you and fought with you towards ensuring that you won the election and to ensure that you also recovered your stolen mandate,” he said.

Recounting how he was deposed from the town because he allegedly poured a concoction on his estranged late wife, Olori Bola Adepoju Adesina, he said the avoidable communication gap was the reason behind the widely-reported incident.

He claimed that the escalated fracas between him and the late Olori was misconstrued by the press which, he also alleged, refused to report his own version of the story.

Dr Ige Ogunleye, the Chairman of the Osupa Ruling house which Adesina hails from, confirmed receipt of the letter, but he declined further comment.

Many sources in the ruling house disclosed that the letter comes at an important time, as the Deji throne is vacant.  SaharaReporters had earlier gathered from a kingmaker in the palace that the Osupa Ruling House is the next family to present candidates for the throne.

We also learnt that chiefs in Akure will this week complete traditional rites for the late Oba Adebiyi Adegboye Adesida. A source revealed that the daughter of the deceased, Princess Adetutu, is expected to be installed as Regent of Akure pending the emergence of a new king.

The palace source told our reporter that the belated installation was on account of family exigencies. 

“The issue is that Princess Adetutu was nursing her baby when the sudden death of her father was pronounced.  But immediately after the whole rites she might will be installed as the regent of the kingdom this week or early in the New Year," the source said.

But an aide to the Lisa of Akure, High Chief James Olusoga, told SaharaReporters in a phone interview that the traditional rites would be completed with the installation of a regent, most likely between Christmas and the New Year festival period.

With just 23 days since the death of Adebiyi Adesida, the jostling for the throne has begun at a frantic pace, with members of the Osupa Ruling House lobbying kingmakers for the vacant sit.

While some seem to favour the return of the deposed Adesina to the throne, others object, fearing victimisation should he re-emerge the king.

In the letter, however, the former and perhaps future Deji seems to have leant his lessons of his experience and reconciled with those who worked against him.

Dated December 19, it was addressed to Governor Olusegun Mimiko through his Commissioner for Justice and Attorney General, Eyitayo Jegede (SAN).  It was copied to the Deputy Governor, Ali Olanusi; the Speaker of the State House of Assembly, Samuel Adesina; the State Chief Judge, Sehinde Kumuyi; Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Bamiduro Dada; and the Akure Council of Chiefs through Lisa of Akure, High Chief James Olusoga.

The Level of Deprivation

This goes to show the level of deprivation of our so-called Obas in the Yoruba land: Assault and Battery, Rape, Compromise, Partisanship and so on. It is high we stopped their excesses.

RE:WE ALL HAVE SINNED

Haba!!!! When will some Nigerians say the simple truth in their life? Please what did you call mistake? To kill his wife is making mistake? So you are supporting his mistake? ABOMINATION FOR A ROYAL FATHER unless he is an AGBERO. I recomend that your mother be killed by your father's mistake so that you will understand what you are saying. Abeg wake up if you wrote this articel from the dream, otherwise KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT UP>

STUPID HOOLIGAN!!!

OMG!!! Adepoju a senseless man still has audacity to beg and come back as a king? What? Please let him bring Bola back from her grave and then grant his request, If there will be any..... STUPID THUG

Now Its beginning to add up

This was the plan in the making. OBasanjo is a heartless man. The late OBA Adebiyi was a loyalist to him. He used to pay him regular visitation during his Jail term under Abacha. Nigeria will never move forward if the Likes of this people have so much control and strong hold over the country.

I wonder what Uncle Biyi did to you Obasanjo. Hmm The truth will be in the open someday and You too will Die someday Obasanjo. Your money and power won't be able to buy you an extra second when your time comes.

TRUTH BE TOLD : "OBA Adebiyi Adesida died of poisoning after attending an OBA function. He was rushed back to the Palace and less than 48hrs was pronounced dead "

Abomination!

"I must passionately plead with your Excellence to remember how well I stood behind you and fought with you towards ensuring that you won the election and to ensure that you also recovered your stolen mandate,” he said. HOW does his political stand relate with WIFE BEATING TO THE POINT OF DEATH, abeg? LET JUSTICE PREVAIL - HE HAS LOST ALL RIGHTS TO THE SACRED THRONE Lo ba tan! Mtchewwwww

Expose Wife-Beating ex Deji

How on nearth does this bush doctor sort of a man think the king makers and citizens of Akure are so daft that they would have him back? This is what ordinary Nigerians with fear of God in mind should do: They should discover and circulate continously his phone numbers and home addresses in UK on the internet. This will make it easy for Nigerians and organizations in UK to seek legal methods to bring him to justice. Let us all wake up and show we can progress beyond our usual "forgive and forget, forgive and forgive" which is a main source of our criminality.

Why did he run to London?

Why did this man run to London after beating his wife into a pulp?  If he was interested in his hometown, why did he not remain there, ensure that the poor woman receive adequate health care and then face whatever repercussion might have awaited him?  Apart from wife beating, what of the disgraceful behaviors he reportedly displayed as if he was still in London where he did God-knows-what?//The man had his chance and was crowned and blew it.  He degraded the Deji Throne.  Women have been battered and killed by husbands who got away with it.  Mercifully, this time, it will not happen.  He should remain in London or wherever he was.  If Osupa insists on him, I do not know what that means to their turn.

I SUSPECT OBASANJO.

Obasanjo, oh yes, the same baba Iyabo was at the Oba's palace in Akure last week Thursday. And now we are learning about the deposed Oba's letter to the governor. I have been wondering since I read about Obasanjo's trip to Akure, now I know why he was there.

THE WAGON WHICH DROVE DARE OUT, HAS BROKEN DOWN IRRETRIEVABLY.

There is no replcement to bring him back. It was a one-off transaction and is for ever. It has been knocked down and apart completely. Adieu Dare. You want to come back? To do what? Damnable soul. ALL THE TECHNICALITIES IN THE WORLD FALL FLAT ON THEIR FACE WHEN IT COMES TO THIS MATTER. RETURNING BACK TO AKURE ITSELF IS A NO!-NO!! GOOD RIDDANCE TO BAD RUBBISH.

ANOTHER CHANCE TO DO WHAT?

To commit worse atrocities? He must be denied such a devilish chance. This guy must be joking. He is blatanly daring like a DARE that he is. Did nobody tell him he was formally booted out a long time? How would any functionary ever feel safe in his presence. If he could do this to his better-half, he will do it to just anybody. The people have turned their back at you because of your heinous crime and sacrilege. He is carrying the crude joke rather far. They should help him sew his uniforms ready for his prison term. This woman must not die in vain.

We all have sinned

It takes two side of a story. The man made a mistake and had apologized. After he was dethroned, Akure has never known peace and for peace to return to Akure land, this man must be brought back to his father's throne. Akure sons and daughters pls emulate Owo people. Forgive him and move on.

WHAT WOULD YOU HAVE LEARNT?

Dare or what is your name? What would you have learnt and who taught you the bloody lesson. The voice of the people is here against you. You irritated people the more coming up with this crocodile tears. Look at evidence from this picture. Imagine this lady was vulnerable like this, without a touch from you, you would have been free. You went to meet her in her chosen territory and battered her. How come the pieces of your beads were picked from the street on a normal day? Men, you killed her. The only office awaiting you now is either jail or death sentence both home and abroad. You know too well that hot tempered people are hardly crowned in Yorubaland, neither murderer. You lacked the dinity and carriage of an Oba. Your days are over, your head has openly rejected kingship.

Deposed king

This former king should thank his star that he is still alive. If it were in the olden days, he will not be allowed back to the town talk less of becoming a king. This Oba can only come back if he can bring back his former olori from the land of the dead. Cheekena

Ex Deji of Akureland

You are a disgrace to your family and Yoruba land. Please, forget the thought of being reinstated as Deji. The grievous injuries you inflicted on your wife possibly accounted for her untimely death. In other climes, you will be cooling your feet behind bars, but you have been able to get away with murder due to the kind of jungle judicial system we operate in Nigeria. You had the golden opportunity and you blew it. Perish the thought of becoming Deji again. Common criminal.

Does this wife beating ex-king have a daughter called Iyabo?

1. Is the ex-king's letter an open or closed letter?

2. Does this wife beating ex-king have a daughter called Iyabo?

Nonsense!

But why is it that these Obas in Yoruba Land love absconding? Just like the Oba of Ilorin ran into the Offa forests in 1777, so the Oba of Akure ran to London. Na wao!

SU[RISED UK COULD ALLOW HIM IN THE COUNTRY

Am surprised this man was allowed to enter UK after he abused and killed his wife. If it was the USA, he would have been detained and marked as a wife beater/molester. I don’t know what Yoruba Race has turned to when an Oba who publicly flogged his wife; and the woman eventually died; and was dethroned, and now want to come back to reign over the same people he put shame upon by his barbaric act?

Never!!!!

So the poor lady subsequently died?!! Oti o. This Adesina man should be in a cage.

God forbid he ever regains that throne. Anyway, I trust Gov. Mimiko to give him the heave-ho.

Never! This man(Adesina) is clearly a danger to all.

Wife battering.

The Monarch must be out of his mind. Too late. He doesn't deserve what he is asking for. My heart goes out to his victim. He deserves many years of incarceration.

The Akure Monarch who is asking for forgiveness

After looking at the above picture, the Oba should have been sentenced to dead or life inprisonment for murder. Why was he allowed to go free while the wife was dead? Was there no laws against murder in Ondo State? Where there no security forces in Ondo State, and Akure, in particular then? Was the then Governor of Ondo State not educated enough to know that murder was committed?
If the former Deji of Akure Kingdom, Oluwadare Adepoju Adesina wants his job back, he should be given the condition to bring his former wife, Olori Bolanle back to life.

LET COLD KILL HIM IN LONDON.

@OGIDIGBODIGBO:
Murderer Dare ran to London on his own volition. He was not sent there by the Ondo State government or the Akure people. He ran to London because he was too ashamed of what he did to his ex-wife. Nigeria is a lawless country that's why was Dare not prosecuted for murder.
I agree with you 100% on flogging that son of a bitch with bilala along the whole length of Oba Adesida Road. And he should be stripped naked too.

Motor park Oba

He can be reinstated provided the late wife gives her consent.

Deposed Deji of Akure be Re-instated If.........

I definitely believe the Prince Oluwadare Adepoju Adesina should be reinstated back to the throne of Deji Of Akure as long as he can bring his late wife, Olori Bolanle Adesina back from the grave.

We the children of Oduduwa are willing to consider appeal letter of the deposed Oba Oluwadare Adepoju, however, we cannot do anything without the input and the opinion of your late wife that you sent to early grave.

Once you bring Olori Bolanle with you, for sure, the throne of Akure is also waiting for you!

Akure people are anxiously waiting to receive and warmly welcome Prince Oluwadare Adepoju Adesina as the Deji of Akure and Olori Bolanle!!!!!

It's unfortunate the woman

It's unfortunate the woman died in the process. Perhaps she knew about some heinous crime(s) her husband has committed and the only way for the former monarch is to eliminate her to cover up. I feel sorry for the children the woman had for him. Well, I doubt if Akure people will ever allow a criminal/murderer to come and rule them again.

The Woman abuser Depoosed King be jailed

Yes the man should be jail for brutalising and abusing a woman. Nigerian women are weak,and depressed people. they don't fight for abused women. That man should not be allowed in the UK where human right is respected. He should be tried or ask to swear to sango or juju for the death of the poor young woman he abused. That man should be tried in the law court and the UK should deport. Sahara this man should be expose to the UK authority and uk human right bodies as a woman beater. Sahara this is a challenge for you.

Where is justice , would this

Where is justice , would this woman allowed to be rotten away without justices and the callous ,animal in human form still demanding for reconsideration for the post he had already abused. To my honorable Governor , ever militant , able OLUSEGUN MIMIKO please distant your self from this animal in man making . You had compensated him for what he has done for you. but. he misbehaved and mind you if you re-appointed him, he would do the worse than before . IROKO"safe your political career. We the youth look at you as embodiment of success and always behind you. Avoid Arab-spring in ondo state .I appreciate your God giving wisdom and remains bless.

ON 2nd THOUGHT

On second thought, I think this freak Dare should be allowed to go back to Akure.

It seems he is tired of driving a taxi in London. And the place is too cold for him. He should be allowed to return to Akure where the people should promptly adorn his neck with a used tire and parade him through the streets in only his underpants and fishnet singlet. He should also be flogged with koboko at every 3 minute interval as he meanders through town.

Were!

YAHOO

Why descend only on former Deji of Akure ? The other day, Iyab exposed another Yoruba man who turned his wife to punching bag several years into the marriage, nobody said anything. Is it because the woman Iyab bemoaned the beating meted to her survived the ordeal and did not die ?

So long as we are willing to accept wife-beating from some equally callous, heinous and beastly fellows around us because of ethnic based politics, so much will the likes of former Deji of Akure summon the effrontery to seek reward for sending that innocent lady to premature death.

The deposed Obama should be

The deposed Obama should be in jail for murder, Mimiko ,IGP & all concerned, the whole world and prosperity is watching us all!!!!!

SHAMELESS MAN

Shameless and crazy man is this Dare.

This fool should bury his head in permanent shame and be thanking his waning stars that his is not in jail serving a life sentence for murder.

Gov Mimiko should be very careful. Any attempt to bring this drunken woman beater back would do the gov irreparable damage.

DO NOT TAKE THE PEOPLE FOR GRANTED!
