Chief Ifayemi Elebuibon, a traditionalist and Baba Araba of Oṣogbo has cautioned Nigerians against going for the wives of the late Alaafin of Oyo until they complete some rites.

Recall that 83-year-old Alaafin, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi lll had died on Friday during a routine check up at the Afe Babalola University, Ado-Ekiti.

The late Alaafin of Oyo had 13 wives while he was alive. The monarch was well known for his love for light-skinned women. Their pictures with the late king were often seen on social media as he was very proud of his wives.

Elebuibon while responding to questions asked by BBC Yoruba disclosed that the wives will only be available to other men until their mourning period end and all rites are completed.

He explained further that the monarchs wives are free to remarry but this could only be after the Alaafin’s prestige has been removed from them.

However, he stated that the wives are left for the next king and he can marry them if he desires.
