There is a plaque erected by the side of the gate of the house that really provides evidence thet the late king was kept in exile there.

 

He was banished after he refused to Cede his Opobo Kingdom to the British during the colonial days.

 

 

reactions from netizens:

 

ST Vincent: Wow. Why was he exiled in the first place? Just like how america and Britain abandoned Afghanistan after they’ve justified spending “war budget” and obviously, made x10 profits from their initial “investment” in afghan.

Just like how the Royal niger company destabilized the giant of Africa after sucking it dry and,and still sucking it. They also brought two politicians who hate eachother (lord lugard and lord I’ve forgotten his name) to rule over the south and northern protectorate of Nigeria. It was all about politics and what they stand to gain in the name of the queen. This also goes to our kinsmen that we’re backstabbers, sellouts, ffuck them in their graves.

Everyone just keeps taking and taking from Africa. Down to all our military rulers, yakubu Gowon and the cement armada, 47$million dollars in gains, that’s in the 70’s. That’s one of the numerous white whale projects. Down to the civilian rule. The shit hole keeps getting shiitier. I’ve successfully derailed the thread so, welcome to Alcatraz!
