How Ooni Of Ife Cheated Elder Brother, Prince Tunji Ogunwusi, Bribed Kingmakers To Become The Ooni

March 21, 2016 – Ooni Of Ife’s Elder Brother, Prince Adetunji Leaves Nigeria After Bribed Kingmakers Makes Younger Brother The New Ooni Of Ife

How Ooni Of Ife Cheated Elder Brother, Prince Adetunji Ogunwusi, Bribed Kingmakers To Become The Ooni

Unknown to many, the keenest contest for the Ooni’s stool against Oba Adeyeye Enitan Babatunde Ogunwusi (Ojaja 11) last year came from his immediate elder brother, Adetunji. The two brothers have many things in common, being blood brothers from the same father and mother.

Both of them are big players in the real estate sector, particularly in the Lekki-Ajah axis of Lagos. But while the things they have in common had strengthened their relationship over time, the contest for Ooni’s stool resulted in a family feud, as Prince Adetunji refused to step down for his brother until their father mounted pressure on him to yield the stool to his younger brother.

And it was not only Prince Adetunji’s father that appealed to him. Other influential, well-meaning Nigerians also had to intervene. It was after the pleas and series of family interventions that Prince Adetunji reluctantly agreed to step down for the then Prince Enitan.

Indeed, Adetunji had to travel out of the country for months after his younger brother was announced as the Ooni. Family sources said their father had to lead other family members to Lagos to plead with Prince Adetunji to step down.

    Maybe this Prince Adetunji is an irresponsible man, or why would his father join in pressing him to cede his rightful claim to his younger brother? Tell me that the Ooni had bribed the king makers and I would not make a noise. But to say that the Ooni had eqaully bribed his father! No! No! No! The father must have seen that the then Prince Enitan was more capable than his elder brother.

    **************As a high chief in Yoruba land and a close family member of the Ogunwusis’ was very privy to all that happened and as a matter of fact i was among the strong supporters of Arole Oodua, Prince Adetunji Ogunwusi whom at the expense of my life among other well wishers, sojourned to Nigeria from USA upon his invitation to come and support his quest for Oodua stool. Prince Tunji Ogunwusi is a humble and kind hear-ted philanthropist. Despite the fact that i am a full flesh Ijebu man from Ijebu-Ode, i see myself as the son of Oodua and i will do anything within my know how to help in fostering unity and progress of Yoruba race. Iku Baba Yeye, Alaafin of Oyo also played an integral part in making sure that Ogunwusi’s royal family was not cheated and derailed from the quest for the new Ooni like before. Prince Adetunji Ogunwusi never succumbed to the pressure nor family demands to give in in support of Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi. Their father carried out his will in favor of Adetunji’s junior brother based on the reasons best known to him. May the almighty Creator continue to guide and direct Ooni Adeyeye Eniitan Ogunwusi in the right path as the sole custodian of Oodua’s stool. May his will to unite Yoruba and maintain peace within our country, Nigeria be acceptable in the presence of ‘Olodumare’ and the spirits of Yoruba ancestors. May Prince Adetunji Ogunwusi live long in great health and flourish like never before in all of his endeavors.

      Good response my brother , Adetunji Ogunwusi deserves the oni stool more far better than his junior brother with so many issues at stake on his neck. He is no one to be reckoned with but no matter how long nemesis will catch up with the truth very soon

    This accusation or claim is no issue in my view. Why? Positions of authority, power, wealth, and affluence are not given to human beings based on age, senority, experience, siblings arrangement, education, and knowledge but it is by God design and His ultimate plan for each of us. The fact that their two parents were fully involved in the whole kingship process speak volume. The two prince were from the same parents, both are highly successful estate agents, and they are wealthy make the story baseless, unfounded, and lack authenticity. I have to admit that no one knows the whole truth in this case, but the fact is that Kabiyesi Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi is now the Oni of Ife, and the rest is now history.

    MY FATHER MY MAKER ,MAY MY POSITION AND WHAT RIGHTLY BELONGS TO ME NEVER BE TAKEN AWAY BY FORCE AND GIVEN TO MY YOUNGER ONE !. BUT PRINCE ADETUNJI ISN,T HUNGRY LIKE ESAU,BCOS WE ARE TOLD THEY ARE BOTH RICH IN THEIR ESTATE BUSINESS. SOME CHILDREN CAN REALLY BE FAVOURED BY THEIR PARENTS AT D DETRIMENT OF D OTHER CHILD .VANITY UPON VANITY . I 100% BELIEVE D PHRASE “IF THE LORD DOES NOT BUILD A HOUSE , D BUILDERS BUILD IN VAIN ” IF U,RE FAVOURED BY UR PARENTS , ARE U FAVOURED BY GOD ? OLUWA CAN DECIDE TO USE D JENIOR PERFECTLY BUT IF D DECISION WAS CALCULATED THEIR FADA , WITHOUT OLUWA,S DIRECTION ,VERY SOON , EVENTS WILL UNFOLD THEMSELVES . WE ARE WATCHING !.

    A name can make or mar a person. The Ooni’s name connotes that he is the rightful person to be made king I.e he that is worthy of the throne. Maybe the elder brother is a hot tempered person. I’m sure the father has a very good reason for his choice.The Ooni looks calm and lovable,and he is representing us well.

    Their father based it solely on the fact that it was said when Oba Adeyeye was little they were told that he will be great and also his sister had dreamt he became the king which she also told their father even way back before Oba Sijuade passed on. All these couple with Oba Enitan lobbying and bought his way.

    What goes around comes around in this world of ours.
    Also, the broom that was used in chasing out the
    First wife is also used to do same to the second wife;
    Still counting.
