Queen Damilola, one of the estranged wives of 83-year-old Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi, has tendered an unreserved apology to the monarch for speaking negatively about him when she left his palace in April 2021.
Damilola had left on grounds that she was locked up in a cell for breaking palace rules.
Shortly after her departure, she took to social media to speak against the monarch and the palace.
However, in a new post, she apologised to the monarch for her utterances.
She wrote, ”I WANT TO USE THIS MEDIUM TO TENDER UNRESERVED APOLOGIES TO THE ENTIRE FAMILIES OF ADEYEMI ( ALAAFIN OF OYO) OVER MY LAST POST. PLS I WANT YOU ALL TO KNOW THAT I’M NOT UNDER DURESS IN SENDING THIS MESSAGE AND THAT I’M IN GOOD STATE OF MIND.
