The Strange Case Of Mrs. Ransome-Kuti And The Alake Of Abeokuta Sir Ladapo Ademola, Alake of Abeokuta, wearing one of his eighty-nine priceless crowns. I cannot hate her, he says of the woman who drove him out.

At first, the Alake didnt take the fiery, crusading Mrs. Ransome-Kuti seriously. When he did, she had a clamouring bunch of women behind her, asking for more rights. So the Alake, rather than hit a woman, decided to abdicate. A year later he was back, and the boisterous battle was on again.
