Great Great Job! I bet the National Archives in Ibadan and the National Commission for Museums and Monuments do not have these photos. You'll find more history about Nigeria in museums/private collections in Europe than in Nigeria. I was very disappointed to say the least when i visited the museum at Onikan, Lagos recently.

Oba Olateru Olagbegi II, the Olowo of Owo, seated beneath carved ivory tusks, Owo, Nigeria (1959). The high value placed on ivory goes back to antiquity and is reflected in mythical accounts of Orunmila's preference for and association with it. Because ivory was such a precious resource, and the preferred material for denoting the status of kings, chiefs, warriors, and diviners, elephant tusks were a commodity controlled by a powerful elite. Within Owo's sphere of influence, elephant hunters retained only one tusk out of every pair of tusks and were required to present the other to the Olowo (the king of Owo).

That's what he is. The joke is on you to disprove his integrity and honesty. His stallion qualities are chronicles for us to see except for folks who finds fault when there is none. He remains the only leader so far in the history of this country that nobody has been able to bring any charges against. If you think there's any both as an head of state and ptf chairman, oya mr. Find fault, do justice to my curiosity.
