EKO HOT BLOG reports that special Adviser to the Lagos State Governor on Education, Barrister Tokunbo Wahab has denied claims by an impostor that he was bankrolling one of the applicants gunning for the vacant Alaketu stool.
The legal practitioner and technocrat stated this in a post on his official Facebook page on Tuesday.
This online media platform recalls that the Alaketu stool became vacant after the previous holder, HRM Oba Adegboyega Adefowora joined his ancestors in September 2021.
Tokunbo Wahab said he had to react to the false accusations for posterity’s sake, describing the claims as baseless, delusive and an attempt to blackmail his person thereby dragging his name into the selection process.
“My attention has just been drawn to a fallacious post made by a faceless person claiming that I am financing and supporting one of the applicants to the Alaketu stool. For the avoidance of doubts, this is baseless, delusive and outright blackmail just to drag my name into the issues surrounding the selection process of the new Alaketu of Ketu. I would ordinarily have ignored the blackmail, but it is important to set the record straight for posterity’s sake,” he wrote
In the statement, Tokunbo Wahab disclosed that he was out of the country on an official assignment, when he got wind of the social media blackmail by an impostor.
He, however, reiterated that he has absolute trust in the selection process put in place by the family heads.
“Been a Royal Prince of Ketu – Ereyun, I made a firm decision to deliberately stay away from the selection process of the new Alaketu, just to allow our trusted family heads to make the right choice for the unity and progress of our dear Ketu town. Unfortunately, I have received numerous calls and messages claiming a faceless impostor is on social media blackmailing me, even while I was out of the country on an official assignment,” he said.
Describing the social media blackmail as a distraction, Tokunbo Wahab further pleaded with his kinsmen who hailed from Ikosi-Ejinrin LCDA, Epe Division of Lagos State to be focused as such a media blackmail could result in incitement amongst them and mislead the public.
“It is important to mention that the applicants to the stool are my dear cousins and brothers and we all share mutual respects, hence I will plead with the sons and daughters of Ketu-Ereyun to ignore any rumour coming from any impostor with the aim of misleading the public and inciting the good people of Ketu-Ereyun against one another. This is best described as a needless distraction”
“Lastly, I have absolute trust in the leadership of the Oshokeji-Atesimara Ruling House of Ketu-Ereyun to select the most suitable Omo Oye to the revered throne of Alaketu, and I also plead with everyone to support whoever emerges the royal King of Ketu – Ereyun,” the statement read.

Tokunbo Wahab, thereafter sounded a note of warning to the faceless impostor to retrace his steps else, he wouldn’t hesitate to unleash the laws of the land as enshrined in the cybercrime laws of 2015.
“I however warn the impostor to desist from blackmailing me as I will not have a choice but to seek the protection of the law of the land as provided for in the Cybercrime Law of 2015,” said the Special Adviser.
