Queen Anu, one of the estranged wives of the Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi, has cried out on social media over alleged threats to her life. Anu who is said to have relocated out of the palace after her marriage to the 82-year-old monarch crashed, took to her Instagram post to raise the alarm.
The estranged wife who welcomed a set of twins in 2018, making it the third set the Alaafin of Oyo birthed, alleged that ever since she walked out of the marriage, her life has be n in danger. She accused the monarch of a failed kidnap attempt, disclosing her reason for walking out of the union with the octogenarian as inability to continue to live in bondage.
Queen Aanu asked that Oba Lamidi Adeyemi be held responsible if anything happens to her and/or her children.
“This is an outcry to protect my life. That I left the palace should not warrant a threat to my life. I can never deny my children the right to their father, however, it is only motherly to have them with me. I am appalled that my family is being harassed because my location is unknown to the king. The attempt to also have me kidnapped failed, and I can no longer keep my silence. I refuse to live in bondage and will do anything within my human right to be free. I just want to live and be the mother of my children,” she wrote.
