Ademola Omoniyi entered the palace and sat in kabiyesi’s seat before the conference began, but the chiefs disapproved of his behavior and pushed him away.


“After the meeting, the late Onise was walking back to the main palace with his male clerk when Ademola emerged from his hiding place and struck kabiyesi with a knife on the road, stabbing him to death.” He had been presenting himself as the town’s king until that day.”
