Real Immediate Reason Colonialists Deposed Jaja

A Nairalander, OruExpress, has revealed what might be the real reason Jaja of Opobo was dethroned by the British colonial authorities.l

Of course, we know resource control was the remote reason. But the immediate reason – the ‘last drop that made the water overflow’, according to OruExpress is Jaja’s attempt to buy British boats.

“Do not forget that Jaja of Opobo was detroned, arrested, exiled, and poisoned by the British, for trying to buy British boats.”
