1st Photo Regicide Suspect, Ekiti Prince Who Stabbed King To Death For Refusing To Die
Pictured here is 45-year-old Prince Omoniyi Ademola who stabbed a traditional ruler, Oba Gbadebo Ogunsakin to death near his palace last Monday for refusing to die on time.
Ademola stabbed Ogunsakin,80, to death in Ikole LGA of Ekiti state on Monday after a meeting with his palace chiefs.
In his confession, Demola said he killed the Oba because he resurfaced after he was declared dead last year.
“The crown didn’t belong to Oba Ogunsakin because the town last year declared the stool vacant.
“They said our Oba was dead and my family nominated me to take over only for him to resurface again and said he remained the Oba.
“Last December, my family nominated me and since then I have been trying to take over(the throne). That day when I got to the palace, it was the Oba that first attacked me and I attacked him back which led to his death.”
The late monarch was enthroned in 1986.
