Risa of Atorin-Ijesa Reacts to the installation of Afilaka as Alatorin


The purported self-installallation of Prince Omololu Afilaka as the Alatorin of Atorin-Ijesa, a community in Atakumosa East Local Government of Osun State has appeared to have stirred the hornets.

Sanya Omirin and his cohorts comprising of some third class obas such as the Lifofin of Ifofin, Ilesa, Onitemidayo of Temidayo and Olowu of Owu-Ajegunle, accusing them of slapping the Atakumosa East Chieftaincy Committee headed by HRM Oba S.
