ALAAFIN STOOL: New Alaafin emerges –
Prince Lukman Adelodu Gbadegesin.
Prince Lukman Adelodun Gbadegesin was a personal assistant to the former President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo.
Gbadegesin hails from the Gbadegesin family of the Agunloye Ruling House. He is a grandchild of Alaafin Gbadegesin Ladigbolu II, the predecessor of Alaafin Lamidi Adeyemi III.
Gbadegesin is among the contenders for the historical and highly venerated Yoruba traditional stool, which became vacant following the demise of Alaafin Adeyemi on April 22, 2022.
