Conspiracy against Oluyole

At a time, Ijebu Remo asked for Oluyole’s helping hand in war and he went to help them, before his return, his Balogun/Army commander who is Balogun Aleshunloye conspired against him. He took the rest of the Soldiers with him and appointed them to the Ijebu birder with the order that they shouldn’t allow Oluyole to enter the town anymore. Late in the night Oluyole entered Ibadan without taking the route or entrance Aleshinloye thought they would take, he took Elekuro way. Oluyole has gotten inside his home before Ibadan people heard of his arrival. When Balogun  Bankole Aleshinloye heard of this, hr got furious and got ready to go and kill Pluyole in his house. When Balogun Aleshinloye is about getting into Oluyole’s House, one of Oluyole’s slaves known as Temileke shot him down and killed him.

This is why they eulogize Oluyole with this Oriki/ Eulogy that :

Eni ani ko ma wo ibadan
To ba telekuro Wolu
O dele tan
Iba ni won fi O je
