The 23-year-old woman who became a king

Medical student Taiwo Oyebola Agbona got unexpected news after the death of her father.

“The chiefs consulted the oracle and they were told that I am the one, and worthy to be on the throne,” she told BBC Focus on Africa.

The throne she was talking about is in the Aaye kingdom in Ondo State, south-west Nigeria.

The 23-year-old hesitated at first, saying she needed three weeks to think it over.

She eventually agreed, meaning that she will serve temporarily as king until a male monarch is named.
