JUST IN: Sacked Deji Of Akure Dies


Oba Oluwadare Adesina, the deposed Deji of Akure is dead.

He died on Thursday morning in Abuja at a private hospital after a brief illness.

The passing on of the late Akure monarch was made public through a statement by the spokesperson for the Adesina Royal Family, the Osupa ruling house.

It would be recalled that the dethroned Deji was enthroned in 2005 as the 45th Deji of Akure Kingdom and was dethroned and banished from Akure in June 2010, by the former Governor of Ondo State, Olusegun Mimiko following a crisis between him and his wife, Bolanle.

It was alleged that the late monarch assaulted and poured hot ashes on his late wife which subsequently led to serious injuries and her death.

But the late monarch had denied the allegation which led to his dethronement.


He thereafter challenged the decision in court but did not succeed.
