The Adeniji-Adele Royal Family has cried out that the invasion and vandalisation of the palace of the Oba of Lagos by hoodlums is not only abominable but a desecration of the culture and traditions of the kingdom.
The family, in a statement signed by Dr. Habeeb Gbadebo Adeniji-Adele on behalf of Oba Adeniji-Adele Royal Family said “this desecration is completely unacceptable and a traditional abomination with grave consequences for the perpetrators of these acts.
“We, the Oba Adeniji Adele Descendants hereby condemn this ugly incident and also stand in total solidarity with our dear Royal Father, Oba Rilwanu Babatunde Osuolale Akiolu 1,and all White Cap Chiefs of Lagos in this trying period.”
The family said they were shocked by the vandalism, saying that some “items of our traditional and ancestral heritage” were carted away by the vandals.
“The vandalisation on our ancestral Home was an attack on the indigenes of Lagos and very alien to our great culture. The family therefore calls on all indigenes of Lagos to rise up and protect our traditional and ancestral heritage of Lagos.
“Anyone behind the desecration and violation of Iga Idunganran shall know no peace and will ultimately be humiliated.”
