A yet-to-be identifed Lagos prince has vowed that Oba Rilwan Akiolu will be dethroned.
In a trending video recorded in Yoruba, he accused the monarch of corruption, neglect of the state and the people.
He regretted that Akiolu collects money from the government instead of demanding that the authorities take care of all residents.
The complainant recalled that after violence in the aftermath of the End SARS protests, many expected that the Oba would call everyone and discuss the way forward.
The prince told Akiolu to stop permutions about 2023, adding that kings are expected to provide quality traditional leadership.
“Kabiyesi Rilwan Aremu Osuolale Babatunde Akiolu, we will remove you, we will dethrone you. The way we’ll do it you’ll be surprised.
“It may not be possible legally, but we will do it in a traditional way. You’re not a good father, you’re not a good monarch. You don’t love the people, you don’t love Lagos.”
The prince stated that the Oba still has his “policeman character”.
Akiolu was promoted to an Assistant Inspector-General of Police in 1999, and left service in 2002.
The aggrieved royal member alleged that the retired AIG takes bribe from all corners and owns expensive houses across the metropolis.
He also recalled the theft of the Oba’s symbol of authority as well as the plenty palliatives and cash found in his palace.
