The colonial masters crippled the Monarchs by removing their power and making them answer to the governors of their state. Quite a number of Kings have been removed by politicians.
Below are some notable ones
1 OJUROMI OF UROMI
2 DEJI OF AKURE
After four years of reign, Oba Oluwadare Adepoju Adesina was removed by the traditional council of kingmakers, the same body that installed him King in 2005.
The Deji of Akure was dethroned because the then king brought disgrace to the throne, the council said.
3 SULTAN IBRAHIM DASUKI
He was dethroned after 8 years of rule. Attahiru Bafarawa, the then Governor of Sokoto who was an Abacha ally dethroned the Then Sultan. He was tricked to a meeting with the governor and he was locked up in a hall with his entourage and his palace taken over by mobile police.
4 ALAAFIN OF OYO, OBA ADEYEMI ADENIRAN
5 Emir of Kano Sanusi II
6 Emir of Kano Sanusi I
Between 1954-1963, Lamido Sanusi’s grandfather was the Emir of Kano but was impeached. Late Emir Muhammadu Sanusi was dethroned by Sir Ahmadu Bello as a result of the power tussle in Kano.
