  1. It’s a big taboo and the people that killed him are making mockery of him
    This is why I can never marry a king.
    Deji of Akure came all the way from abroad to become a king and now they have killed him Wicked people

  2. The fact that it is their tradition doesn’t make it right.
    In the Yorubaland if a King dies, people must be banned from seeing him.
    Ti oba ba waja, a kiiii wooo.

  3. When I met him wen he was alive,he was a nice man I used to love his judgement…….now he is gone so painful but who ar we to judge,may God grant him eternal rest

  4. Well…..I pity him, but let be realistic……..he’s successor is still alive, a king must die before having new king, d old king is still alive, now Akure can have a real king. Adieu

  5. all i will say is that eni ti o pa ki o ma ku mo, make the killer stay in life forever . but kabiyesi make u no sleep o, pls fish out your killers… we miss u

  6. It is obvious that if he had cancer and was complaining of a headache, he had cancer brain tumor . No one killed him. Did they carry out an autopsy on him ?
