Oct 18, 2013 – Former Ile Ife King, Oba Adesoji Aderemi Lost 3 Daughters In A Month

In a month, the family of former Ooni of Ife, the late Sir Adesoji Aderemi, lost three women, all daughters of the revered former traditional ruler, reported to have wielded a lot of power and influence during his reign in the town now located in the State of Osun, western Nigeria.

The three women, P.M.NEWS gathered, are Princess Tejumade Alakija, a former Head of Service in the old Western Region, Princess Teniade Areoye Adunni Omoworare and Princess Adeogun Lasekan.

They all died in their old age.

Princess Tejumade Alakija was the first to die on Friday, 23 August at the University College Hospital, Ibadan, after a brief illness. She was 88 years old.
Until her death, Alakija, also a former Pro-Chancellor of the University of Benin, University of Nigeria, Nsukka and the University of Abuja, was the head of the Adesoji Aderemi and the popular Omisore families of Osun State.

Survived by Folake St. Mathew Daniel and Toyin Komolafe, her funeral slated for 8 November and, which sources say would be grand, is to be co-sponsored by the Osun and Oyo State governments in the form of a state burial because of her position and roles in the development of the two states in her life time.
Preparations for her burial are said to be in top gear, with several associations, groups and indigenes of Oyo and Osun states also making her funeral a grand one.

However, while the royal family was still mourning, it lost another prominent matriarch, Princess Teniade Areoye Adunni Omoworare.

The late Princess Teniade and mother of a serving senator, Jide Omoworare, died on Saturday, 12 October, 2013 at the age of 82.
She is also survived by Funke Oyewole, Nike Omoworare, and Segun Omoworare.
Her burial has been tentatively fixed for the last week of November, P.M. NEWS learnt.

Before the death of Princess Teniade, the Aderemi family had lost Princess Adeogun Lasekan, another daughter of the former Ooni.
Her death occurred on 23 September, exactly a month after the death of Princess Alakija.
Princess Lasekan is said to be known and loved for her philanthropic activities and charming smile.

Survived by many children and grandchildren, her funeral ceremony took place last week with a burial service, which took place at the All Saints Anglican Church, Montegomery Road, Yaba while the interment was held at the Vaults and Gardens, Ikoyi, Lagos. A grand reception was later held in her honour at the Shell Hall, Muson Centre, Onikan, Lagos.

  1. Good they all died at old age.
    The Aderemis are very successful children
    ESun re o eyin mama wa
    Eba ni ki ooni o

  2. One of his granddaughters, Tola Aderemi was a good colleague at Peat Marwick Ani Ogunde&Co in the ’80’s. A very noble family.

  3. Blessed are the souls that uphold the value of their Fatherland till the end. These are real and original Yoruba names. Hardly one hear such names among modern day women. The only thing you hear nowawadays are some bull shit names such as: Temmy, Nikky, Flakky, Horlabecee, Pweety Shorlahr; some fucked names. How can women with such names be responsible in the society, not to talk of holding a family intact, or even up holding family value. Majority of them continue to living a depravity lifestyles in their relationship. What a shame.

  4. I THINK THEY HAVE LIVED ENOUGH, BECAUSE THE BIBLE SAID , AS SOON AS YOU ARE SEVENTY , THERE IS NOTHING LEFT FOR YOU , AND THE REST IS SUFFERING , WHERE YOU END UP URINATE AND SHIT EVERYWHERE , BECAUSE YOU ARE NO LONGER ABLE TO GET UP AND GO TO THE TOILET YOURSELF, I USED TO WORK AS A CARER TO CARE FOR OLD PEOPLE, WHAT I HAVE WITNESS IS SO HORRIBLE , SO BEING 82YEARS IS OK, AND THE OTHER ONE WAS 86YEARS IS ALSO BETTER , I KNOW THERE IS NOTHING WRONG IN REACHING 100YEARS, THERE WAS A WOMAN IN ONE OF THE NURSING HOME THAT WAS HUNDRED AND SIX, AND SHE WAS STILL GOING TO THE TOILET HERSELF AND PREPARED HER BREAKFAST, YESTERDAY THERE WAS ONE COUPLE WHO HAVE JUST GOT MARRIED ,THE WIFE IS 104 AND THE HUSBAND IS 109, , I WISH TO LIVE MY LIE LIKE METUSELA. AND WHOEVER READ WHAT I HAVE WRITTEN WILL LIVE UP TO TWO HUNDRED.
