This appeal was made on Wednesday by the State Chairman of the party Hon. Adesoji Adagunodo who led other leaders of the party on a courtesy visit to the highly revered monarch at his Ile Oodua Palace in Ile-Ife.

The State party Chairman apologized on behalf of the detained Ife politician who has not visited the king since he was crowned seven months ago promising that as a true son of Ife and bonafide member of the Oduduwa House, Omisore will upon his release be brought to the palace to do the right thing.

“Your Imperial Majesty, we are here to pay our homage to you as the father of our race who must be respected by all true sons and daughters of Yoruba Race.

We also beg you in the name of Oduduwa to use your goodwill in assisting us to rescue one of our leaders Otunba Iyiola Omisore from the EFCC detention even though we are not unaware of his attitude towards this sacred palace as he has refused to pay homage since you were divinely crowned seven months ago.

We can assure you of his change of attitude as soon as he is released from detention”. Adagunodo pleaded.

Responding, the Arole Oodua said he has no grudge whatsoever against Omisore who he described as a prominent Ife indigene entitled to his choice of relationship and assured the PDP chairman of his readiness to assist them within his limited capability and prayed that God will set him free if he has no skeleton in his cupboard over the matter.

“Omisore is a prominent Ife son, I don’t have any grudge against him whatsoever over his refusal to visit my palace since I became the Ooni. You all must know that he is entitled to his right of choice on who and where to visit at anytime. Don’t also forget he is undergoing a procedural investigation and laws of the land must be respected but I promise to assist you on this matter within my limited capability legally guided.

I heartily pray God should quickly set him free if he has no skeleton in his cupboard”. Ooni said.

The state party leader was accompanied to the Ooni’s palace by about 20 Chieftains to include Ife/Ijesa Senatorial leader Hon. Wale Ojo, Ife Central LG Chair, Hon. Adebowale Adedotun(Meree), Ife East LG Chair, Hon. Durojaye Isaac, Hon. Funso Babarinde, Engr. Marcus Adedini, Prince Olajide Olaosebikan, Prince Tobi Akomolede and others.



  1. Ooni has spoken.
    Omishore will be quickly set free if he does not have any skeleton in his cupboard!
    Let justice take its due course!

  2. Is he being detained unlawfully? Is Omisore a law-abidding citizen of Nigeria? Has he not trully stolen from us?

  3. Una still need to visit alafi of Oyo , then to emir of Kano , finally sultan of sokoto. Oloshi people joblessness dey worry Una abi?

  4. Please PDP don’t drag ooni into the political mess dat omnisore has put himself in,pple who committed same fraudulent offence are in d police net so allow the law to take it cause,Ooni is not a politician I beg!

  5. Shior….now they remember they have to beg Ooni for omisore’s freedom. They’ve forgotten that he has no regard for anybody whatsoever…you better go find work do if you no get one. Justice shall surely prevail irrespective of any intervention.


  7. That PDP leader deserves to be stoned. He thinks it is business as usual abi? Using positions to embezzle believing that’s God’s will for putting them in authority. Why on earth should any sane human being lobby for the release of an indicted man? Sometimes I feel like getting outta this banana republic where people have lost all sense of morality and decency.
    We need a total re-engineering of our collective psyche because we’re actually lost and can no longer differentiate between right and wrong. This is a national malady and can only be corrected if we agree to practice real federalism, regionalism or outrightly unbundling this contraption called Nigeria

  8. These PDP people will never change from their crooked ways
    They are begging for someone alleged to have stolen the nation’s money not to face trial and are trying to influence the revered Ooni to take part in this disgraceful project
    Good thing Ooni has said that Omisore should be fine as long as he has no skeleton in his cupboard

  9. It is very instructive that the Ooni referred to him as Omisore. Not Chief or Otunba Omisore. Iyiola Omisore is now becoming a has been in the scheme of things. It is very unlikely he would return from his incarceration in Abuja to come and prostrate openly in front of Ooni Ogunwusi. Omisore is not an Ife prince neither is he a title holder in Ile Ife. I stand to be corrected. His present travails stem ostensibly from contracts obtained and not fully executed. Plea bargains are an easy option. However, the monarchy and royalty should not be dragged into politics. We all forget that late Ooni Olubuse ordered Iyiola Omisore’s campaign posters to be removed from the palace when the billboards were put up without his permission.
