As a result of the demise of the 45th Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi III, his 18 wives may now be available to suitors without any need to undergoing cleansing rituals.

Oba Adeyemi joined his ancestors on late Friday at 83 after receiving treatments at the Afe Babalola University, Ado-Ekiti and has since been laid to rest according to Islamic rites by 4:00 p.m. on Saturday.

Although it is believed in the Yoruba tradition that the wives of the monarchs, either separated or still married are not at liberty to lay with other men until atonements have been made, palace sources told Peoples Gazette that the late Alaafin’s wives may now move on with their normal lives since the King has joined his ancestors.

While the number of wives remains unclear, the sources told The Gazette that the late monarch had 18 wives. Although this outlet was immediately unable to verify other names.

According to belief, any man who lays with the wife of a monarch faces death. But as the case on ground now has to do with the demise of the great monarch, Oba Adeyemi’s queens, Abibat (first wife), Rahmat Adedayo, Mujidat, Rukayat, Folashade, Badirat Ajoke, Memunat Omowunmi, Omobolanle, Moji, Anuoluwapo, Damilola, Chioma and others are now free from the bond and are available for suitors.

“They are not performing any cleansing; They are free to move on with their lives,” he said. Nonetheless, he said. “The wives cannot get married to an indigene of Oyo.”

He added, “Now that Alaafin is dead, they all would be asked to exit the palace with their belongings. Although the properties of the late monarch would be shared among them.”
