The Olubadan of Ibadanland, Oba Saliu Adetunji, has joined his ancestors.
He was aged 93.
NaijaNews247 learnt that he died at the University College Hospital (UCH) in the early hours of Sunday following an illness.
His death was confirmed by the Ekarun Olubadan, High Chief Amidu Ajibade.
However, when contacted, the monarch’s aides neither confirmed his death nor denied it.
Another aide subtly said in Yoruba, “You don’t hear bad news from a priest.”
Oba Adetunji became the Olubadan on March 4, 2016.
He was the first of 17 children of his parents.
