As Prince Oluwadare Adesina begins frantic moves to return to his throne as Deji of Akure, the family of his battered late wife has appealed to the state government to consider Adesina’s appeal for reinstatement.
Bolanle’s family said their show of solidarity to the deposed Oba was because the two families have reconciled their differences.
Last week, Prince Adesina wrote a letter to Governor Olusegun Mimiko and the kingmakers pleading to be re-installed as the deji of Akure following the death of the reigning king who died early this month.
Prince Adesina was removed from his stool after he battered his wife, Bolanle, in a show of shame that many believe desecrated the stool of Deji of Akure.
Unfortunately, the battered wife died shortly after the incident while the installed deji died early December after reigning for about 3 years.
In a show of solidarity to Prince Adesina, the family of his battered wife said in a statement signed by the Head of their family, Chief Akinola Fadeyi and obtained by African Examiner that both family have reconciled their differences even as they urged the kingmakers and the governor to reinstate their in-law.
“We are more touched by the gestures of forgiveness, godliness and love extended to our daughter even in her death and the dignity with which her memory has been treated by her husband.” The family stated
They also disclosed that their family has considered all the issues that ensued before, during and after the deposition and banishment Oba Oluwadare Adesina, and thus urged Governor Olusegun Mimiko and the good people of Akure to please consider the appeal of their in-law.”
“It is our belief that reinstating our in-law to his position as the Deji of Akure will be a rare honour done to our family and the memory of our late daughter.” They concluded.
