Gani Adams Becomes The 15th Aare Ona Kakanfo Of Yorubaland

The Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi, on Sunday picks the National Coordinator of the Oodua People’s Congress, Gani Adams, as the 15th Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yorubaland.

The position was previously held by the late MKO Abiola, who died in the detention camp of the late military dictator, Gen. Sani Abacha, in 1998 for refusing to renounce his presidential mandate for freedom.

Alaafin confirmed this to a national daily correspondent in a chat last night.

Meanwhile, the position of Aare Ona Kakanfo which is the highest military title in Yorubaland makes Adams the generalissimo of the forces of Yorubaland but carries with it a huge responsibility and a supreme price – a curse if you like.
