Eshilokun was the Oba of Lagos from 1780 to 1819. Eshilokun became king following the expulsion of Oba Adele Ajosun, who was accused of negligence in the keeping of cultural sanctity. Like his Great Uncle’s, his reign was uneventful, and he also had to grapple with his brother, Adele who attempted to regain the seat of authority. Eshilokun’s two sons, Idewu Ojulari and Kosoko successively became kings after him.
