PremiumTimes reported that the top Yoruba traditional ruler died at the Afe Babalola University Teaching Hospital in Ado Ekiti in the late hours of Friday, April 22, 2022.
The bones of Alaafin Adeyemi, the third from the Alowodu Ruling House, were transported to Oyo early on Saturday, April 23, and traditional rites commenced, according to the source.
The third from the Alowodu Ruling House, Alaafin Adeyemi, ruled for 52 years.
When he receives word of the monarch’s death from the Bashorun of Oyo, Yusuf Akinade, who will now manage the historic town until a new Alaafin is installed, Governor of Oyo State, Seyi Makinde, will make an official statement.
Because the traditional ruler was ill, a plan was devised to replace him.
