One of the 83-year-old Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi’s estranged wives, Queen Damilola, has apologized unequivocally to the monarch and the whole royal family for speaking disparagingly about the monarch after she left the palace in April 2021.
Dami allegedly fled the palace after being imprisoned in a cell for breaking a palace regulation. She began to speak about why she left the palace a few days after she fled. She slammed the monarchy and the palace in several of her remarks.
In a new development, Queen Damilola, in a post shared on her Instagram page this evening, apologized to the monarch for speaking ill of him. She mentioned that frustration and some friends misled her to leave the palace.
Her post reads
”I WANT TO USE THIS MEDIUM TO TENDER UNRESERVED APOLOGIES TO THE ENTIRE FAMILIES OF ADEYEMI (ALAAFIN OF OYO) OVER MY LAST POST.
