Some Oyo People did not go into mourning when When Alaafin Died – Son Of Murdered Ashipa, Olaosegba

Olaosegba, one of the sons of Chief Amuda Olorunkosebi, the late Ashipa of Oyo, has described how his father was brutally killed in Oyo.

He also disclosed that when the Alaafin of Oyo, Lamidi Adeyemi, died, some people in Oyo cheered.

Remember that Alaafin of Oyo died in Afe Babalola Hospital in Ekiti State and joined his forefathers.

In an interview with Punch, Olaosegba revealed that his father was murdered in a gruesome manner, adding that it was done in a dastardly manner.

While describing how his father was killed, Ashipa’s son said: “My father was killed in a gruesome manner, it was dastardly done. They overpowered him, twisted his neck and poured acid down his throat.”

He went on to say that God, the creator of mankind, will condemn everyone involved in his father’s death.

When commenting about the death of Oba Adeyemi, Olaosegba said that many people celebrated.

When the king died, he claimed, Oyo town was not plunged into sorrow.

Olaosegbe said:

When Alaafin died many people in Oyo were just saying, “Eh-en, eh-en.” You know what that means? There is a quarter called Alagutan in Oyo, many people rejoiced openly there when Alaafin died.

“Oyo town did not go into mourning when he died and I am telling you the truth.

“But one must mourn the dead and that was why I didn’t say anything until after the eighth day. But I don’t think they did that when my dad was killed.”

He admonished people to be conscious of the sort of life they lead since their names would be passed down through generations.

Olaosegbe claims that no matter where he travels, people would ask him whether he is connected to Amuda Olorunkosebi of Oyo.

He said that people are still asking him same question thirty years after his father died.

Olaosegbe said:

There was a time I travelled to South-East and I went to court to swear to an affidavit and somebody asked if I was Ashipa’s son. It surprised me that he (my father) could be known in the East. So my point is that a good name is better than riches.

“Things will unfold just like it is written in the Bible concerning Ahab: “Now the rest of the acts of Ahab and all that he did and the ivory house which he built and all the cities which he built, are they not written in the Book of the Chronicles of the Kings of Israel?”
