The Olori Who Was Brutalized By Her Husband Is Dead
Remember the Olori who was brutally attacked by the deposed Deji of Akure in 2010? Well she is dead. She died yesterday morning Tuesday June 12 at St. Mary Specialist Hospital, Ojodu, Ikeja. She was only 35 year old.
Doctors say she died of cardiac arrest but family members say the late Olori had been receiving medical treatment from various hospitals since she was attacked by her husband who was then the traditional ruler of Akure on Sunday May 30, 2010.
Incase you are not familiar with the story, this is what happened.............. On Sunday May 30, 2010, the then Deji of Akure, Oluwadare Adesina Adepoju, along with his first wife and thugs, stormed the residence of the late Olori Bolanle, who was the second wife, and brutally attacked her. The deposed monarch allegedly ordered his thugs to beat up the late Olori and then they poured hot ashes mixed with something else, on her.
Her cries attracted youths in the area who came to her rescue, but not before the thugs of the former Oba had inflicted permanent damage on her.
On June 10, 2010, the former traditional ruler was dethroned and banished by Akure Kingmakers for the attack on his wife. He's not been heard from since.
