Crisis Hits Akeredolu’s Family As Wife Describes Husband’s Niece ‘Serpent’

1 min read

Betty Anyanwu-Akeredolu, the widow of the late Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akerodulu has taken to Instagram on Monday morning to lambast his niece, Funke Akeredolu Aruna.




She referred to Funke as shameless and a serpent for supporting the sitting governor, Lucky Aiyedatiwa, ahead of the November governorship election in the state.

The governor, who was formerly Akeredolu’s deputy, was sworn in on 27th December following the death of his former boss.

Before the governor’s death, internal wrangling had severed his relationship with Aiyedatiwa, bordering on alleged disloyalty of the then deputy governor, which led to the disbandment of his aides.

The State Assembly, through the backings of the governor, also attempted to impeach Aiyedatiwa, even though the details of the duo’s quarrel remained sketchy till Akeredolu’s death.


Speaking through her post alongside the picture of her husband’s niece wearing a cap with an inscription “I am lucky”, Betty said, “Behold the face of Aketi’s niece, Funke Akeredolu Aruna, the former deputy chief protocol to Aketi, shamelessly parades as ‘I am lucky’ Bloody serpent! Time will tell if she is truly lucky!”



This outburst has, however, generated outrage on social media as many believe she should be mourning her husband and not engaging in a fight with anyone.


Some appealed to her to maintain her cool on issues relating to the election.
