Oniru Throne: Abisogun family members at war over succession

Published

on

Less than 40 days after the death of a first class monarch in Lagos State, the Oniru of Iruland. His Royal Majesty, Oba Idowu Abiodun Oniru, serious war has reportedly broken out in Abisogun Ruling House over his successor.
It will be recalled that the respected and powerful monarch died in late September, 2019 at the age of 82 after a brief illness.
Under the reign of the monarch, Iru land, the host of the highbrow Oniru and Victoria Island, became a mega location with investments and buildings worth hundreds of billions of naira.
We were reliably informed that a tussle has broken down over the throne with many candidates showing interest in the coveted seat.
Some of those said to have shown interest in the obaship seat included Wasiu Ogunbambi, Jamiu Adelakun and Saliu Abisogun.
Others included Hakeem Ajasa, Fabayi clan, Giwa Otto clan amongst several others.
Reliable sources informed us that lobby has started in high places as some of the candidates were said to have circulated their curriculum vitae among the kingmakers and have started talking to top officials of the Lagos State Government in-charge of chieftaincy affairs in the state.
It was gathered that the matter has torn the family apart as none of the candidates was willing to step down for another.
Our sources added that what baffled watchers of events in the area is the fact that the crisis broke out just few weeks after the death of the Oba of the town.
“It was only on Friday November 1, 2019 that we did the final burial of Oba Idowu Abiodun Oniru in Eko Hotel. So it is surprising that the candidates for the throne could not even wait for some time before they start fighting over the stool.
“Were they waiting for the Oba to die? We all know that the throne is lucrative, but that does not mean that they should start fighting immediately. It is uncalled for,” said a source.
It was however, gathered the kingmakers have started necessary consultations both traditionally and officially, and that the needful would be done in due course, while those interested in the office “have been cautioned to allow the people in-charge due their work so that Iru land would have the right traditional ruler at the right time.”

Primate Ayodele to S’West govs: “You’re breeding terrorists with Amotekun” +His fulfilled prophecies on rain and air crash

Published

on

The founder and spiritual leader at INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Primate Elijah Babatunde Ayodele (JP), has warned that the decision by governors of Southwest Nigeria to establish a security outfit for the region called Amotekun, was a risky one.

The popular seer, during a Sunday service message at his church headquarters in Lagos, said the governors have set the tone for those who would exploit their good intention for fanatical purposes.

“Southwest governors are creating internal terrorists. The governors must be careful,” Ayodele cautioned, “so that Amotekun does not become another terror group in the Southwest region through those who might want to use it for purposes other than solving people’s security challenges.”

The cleric, at the service, recalled some of his fulfilled prophecies for the new year. They include his warning to the transport union against impending crisis. Ayodele had mid December 2019, warned that the Lagos NURTW leader, MC Oluomo, “should put the house in order because NURTW will experience serious crisis and violence next year.”

On January 12, 2020, the servant of God also asked for rain “within seven days”. The cleric said “whether the weather likes or not, I’m speaking to God as His servant, let there be rain within seven days. Prophets in the Bible prayed, they asked for signs and you listened to them. I stand in that gap and ask for signs for your children; my Lord, answer us with rain. Lord, show us that you are with us in 2020.”

On the evening of Monday, 13th of January, heavy downpour was reported in major cities of the country.

On January 8. Primate Ayodele recalled his November 2019 forewarning that “the first three weeks of the new year would be terrible, except God hears our prayers.”

“America has never experienced earthquake,” said the prophet, “but this year, I foresee America experiencing earthquake for the first time. I speak as servant of God.” Ayodele, who warned on January 7th that, between 2020 and 2022, there will be a big event that would shake the world, noted that prophecy, is the real security report as it is a message that comes straight from God, “but because governments do not understand prophecy or they choose to be stubborn about it, they do not regard it.”

Some of Primate Ayodele’s recent prophecies that have come to pass include the Ukranian plane crash in Iran, the recent attack on churches and Christians, the Iran and America crisis, the renewed attacks on soldiers by the Boko Haram, and many more.
