Deji Akure to wage  fraternal war against Onimesi Ekiti at  Odun Ade festival 2023

The Deji of Akure, His Imperial Majesty, Oba Aladetoyinbo Ogunlade Aladelusi, (Odudun Il) 

will on 10th  November 2023,  wage a  *bonding war* against the Onimesi of Imesi Ekiti, Oba Festus Olatunji Olatunde, Olaibiyemi ll, during the celebration of the *Odun Ade* Festival in Imesi Ekiti.

This epochal traditional initiative will take place during the celebration of *Odun Ade*, a historical traditional festival when the people of Imesi glorify the eminence of the town, showcase its royal grandeur, and fan the ember of primordial relationships. 

This *fraternal bonding war* is rooted in the historical pedigree of the present Onimesi of Imesi Ekiti, whose grandmother; *Supelewa*
