The deposed and banished traditional ruler of Akure town,Ondo State,Oba Oludare Adepoju Adesina has finally broken his silence over what led to the public fight he had with his estranged wife,Bolanle. According to Adeshina, Bolanle left the palace about nine months ago because she was engaging in adultery. “I got know that she was engaging in adultery.You know as a Deji of Akure, if i don’t get to know this physically,there are traditional means” he said.
Adesina also alleged that Olori Bolanle was going to collecting money from state governors and other top government functionaries using his name as a means of getting through. This really angered him and had to take the matter up with Bolanle.The deposed Oba who is expected in court any moment from now also said the report of the fight was blown out of proportion by the press.
It would be recalled that Deji of Akure, Oba Adesina stormed the residence of his estranged wife, Bolanle with his new wife, Remi Abiola (a former wife of Bashorun MKO Abiola) and some people suspected to be hoodlums.Bolanle was reportedly manhandled by the Oba and his entouraged.Some people who thought that the traditional ruler and his entourage were too brutal on the woman came to her defense.
The Deji’s vehicle was damaged and he was manhandled.He was also said to have been manhandled to the point that his traditional beads were picked on the floor. He also reportedly poured some substances suspected to be acid on his estranged wife.
The traditional ruler was widely condemned for bringing the traditional institution to public ridicule.The Ondo State Government led by Governor Olusegun Mimiko also condemned the act of the ruler.Mimiko also deposed and banished the ruler to Owo, the home town of the estranged wife.
