Atiku Mourns Soun Of Ogbomoso


Former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar has expressed sadness over the death of the long reigning  Soun of Ogbomoso land, Oba Oyewumi Oladunni Ajagungbade III.

The 95 years old monarch reportedly died in the early hours of Sunday.

The former Vice President in a statement by his media office on Sunday said that the news of the demise of the famous monarch early Sunday came with a rude shock, even when he died at the ripe age of 95 and 48 years reign on his traditional throne.

Atiku said that the late Soun was a colourful monarch whose reign impacted positively on Ogbomoso land in many remarkable ways.

“I join other friends and admirers of Ogbomoso land to mourn the transition of  Oba Ajagungbade III. Although we are sad that his exit will deny us of his elderly counsels and admonitions, it is remarkable that the late king lived a life of accomplishments as a foremost businessman and a traditional ruler whose reign was remarkably outstanding.

“While I condole with his immediate family and the good people of Ogbomoso land, I also express my deepest condolences to the Oyo State government on the loss of a traditional ruler with towering credentials. I pray that God grants his soul a peaceful repose.”
