All of the last quarter of 2019 till ast year-2020 he had vied gallantly to become the royal father in charge of the highly sought after Oniru stool on the island, Victoria Island and environs to be more precise. In the good old days, the oniru royal family’s vast empire covered from where CMS is now and some part of Marina all the way to VI (all of where Eko Atlantic is now) and to where Lekki Phase 1 is now. In fact as it was then, even the Elegushi of Ikateland and environs was under the authority of the Oniru. But curiously, the Elegushi’s stool was elevated to an Oba 1st before that of the Oniru.
The very dogged police officer and a noted gentleman par excellence, had given the chase to the throne a super good run, he in fact gave it all that it deserved and had been set to be crowned as the new king, only for the powers that be, to remove the seat off his bum while preparations was in high gear to install him and another was speedily installed instead.
All the while that he was vying for the throne, he was a very senior Chief Superintendent of Police and had had the privilege of serving meritoriously at that, very highly placed politicians the likes of the then Governor of Osun State, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola and also the current Speaker of the Federal House of Representatives, Rt. Hon Femi Gbajabiamila. With that knowledge in mind, many and thought it was already smooth sailing to the throne then for the loyal police officer to be become Oba Hakeem Ajasa. But alas, he found out too late that loyalty may not be enough.
But since that horrible disappointment, the police officer just dusted his behind like a true trooper that he his and moved on back to his vocation, especially fully back into what he knows best, the police job. Like we had said in our last report, just before the promotion then was confirmed, Prince Hakeem Ajasa’s promotion to the level of ‘Assistant Commissioner of Police’ has since then been confirmed, he is just 4 more possible elevations to a possible appointment as the Inspector-General of Police one day
, that’s just if he would still be eligible for such an appointment then.
The gentleman has since resumed at his new post in Ekiti State as the ACP in charge of administration at the Ekiti State Command. Known for his diligence and dedication to his job and assignments given to him, we are too sure he would excel again at his new post.
