Deposed Deji of Akure Passes On


It has been reported that the deposed Deji of Akure, Ondo State, Adesina Adepoju, has passed on.

This was reportedly disclosed in a statement by the spokesman for the Adesina Royal Family of the Osupa Ruling House, Dapo Adepoju.

According to reports, the deceased had only ruled for five years, when he was deposed by former Governor Olusegun Mimiko for engaging his wife, Bolanle, in a public fight.

The statement disclosed, “Before his transition to the eternal glory, the deposed monarch prayed for the peace of Akure Kingdom. He said he did his best in defending his people while on the throne.”

The statement read, “The late deposed Deji of Akure Kingdom said God made it possible for him, as a son of the Osupa Ruling House, to ascend the throne as the Deji of Akure Kingdom 100 years after the reign of the Ojijigogun Ruling House.”

It added, “The 45th Deji promulgated and ensured implementation of reasonable market price control during his reign. He also recovered and took possession of Ilula Recreation Centre from a powerful cabal back to Akure Kingdom.”

It noted, “Oba Adepoju during his reign also provided local security and fair judgement was the order of the day. Shortly before he passed on, he predicted that Akure shall be great specifically that an Akure son would lead Nigeria as President.”
