Idewu Ojulari

Idewu Ojulari was the brother to Adele Ajosun and Eshilokun who became Oba of Lagos. Idewu Ojulari became Oba of Lagos in 1819 with the death of Eshilokun and the unresolved expulsion of Adele Ajosun. His initial popularity was blemished by his excessive materialism. He was advised to either go on exile or commit suicide, like the Yoruba do rejected kings. Ojulari chose to die even though there was no child to succeed him. His reign ended in 1832.
