Olubadan of Ibadanland, Oba Saliu Adetunji

The body of the Olubadan of Ibadanland, Oba Saliu Adetunji has arrived his palace for burial.

Recall that the monarch died today.

Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State was among those who mourned the death of the monarch.

The first-class traditional ruler joined his ancestors in the early hours of Sunday at the University College Hospital (UCH) in Ibadan, Oyo State.

His corpse, which was conveyed in a UCH ambulance, arrived at the palace at about 10:40am for burial in accordance with Islamic rites.

It was learned that clerics were already at the palace for prayers and sympathisers have besieged the palace to mourn the traditional ruler.

Reacting to the monarch’s death in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Taiwo Adisa, Governor Makinde described late Oba Adetunji as an exemplary royal father.

The governor stated that the demise of the monarch was painful despite his old age, adding that his wisdom and wealth of experience would be sorely missed.

Makinde said the late monarch gave his all to see that Ibadanland is developed and took its pride of place as one of the major cities in Africa.

He, however, condoled with the immediate family of the Olubadan, the Olubadan-in-Council and all Ibadan indigenes as well as the Oyo State Traditional Council.

The governor disclosed that Olubadan’s death is coming on the heels of the demise of the Soun of Ogbomosoland and Asigangan of Igangan.

He said: “The news of the death of our father, His Imperial Majesty, Oba Saliu Adetunji, Aje Ogungunniso I, came as a shock.

 

“Kabiyesi’s exit at this time is painful, to say the least. His wealth of experience, his immense wisdom and his commitment to seeing a greater Ibadan and a better Oyo State are unrivalled.

 

“Ibadan, Oyo State, Nigeria and humanity at large will miss Kabiyesi, who was ever ready to give his all to see a better society.

 

“I commiserate with his immediate family, the Olubadan-in-Council, the Central Council of Ibadan Indigenes (CCII) and all Ibadan indigenes at home and abroad on the demise of our father.

 

“I equally extend my condolences to the Oyo State Traditional Council and pray to God to keep all our Obas safe and give them more years to direct the affairs of our people, especially as Olubadan’s death is coming on the heels of the demise of the Soun of Ogbomosoland and Asigangan of Igangan. May God grant them all eternal rest.”
