Olori Bolanle Adepoju Adesina, Brutalized Wife Of The Deposed Deji Of Akure, Dies

Olori Bolanle Adepoju Adesina, the brutalized second wife of the deposed Deji of Akure, Oluwadare Adesina Adepoju, has died. Mrs. Adesina was the victim in a brutal domestic violence episode that shook the Nigerian nation and led to the Ondo state government to depose the Akure king.

Family sources told SaharaReporters that she died of 'cardiac arrest' at a private hospital in Maryland area of Lagos. Her corpse has since been deposited at a morgue in Akure.

In May, 2010, the deposed Oba Adepoju mercilessly attacked Mrs. Adesina at her residence at 141 Hospital Road, Akure. After beating her to a pulp, the then traditional ruler poured an unknown substance on her skin. He then ordered his guards to whip his estranged wife, standing unconcerned as her skin peeled off.

Olori Bolanle is survived by two sons.
