oil splash and beads on kitchen walls

My former tenant got oil splashes and beads on the kitchen walls all over. I don't know what to use to clean it up. I have never seen such a messy oily splashed wall like that!!!!!!!

These oil beads look tough; they look yellowish and hard. I scrubbed them with soapy water, yet they did not come off at all. I have oil based paint on the walls. I don't want to use any degreaser, for it might take the paint off too. What can I use to clean the mess? Thanks

I would test-scrub an area with some Dawn dishing liquid and water, but you are probably looking at a painting job.
