SOUN: IT IS A PERSONAL LOSS…. Alao-Akala

The sudden demise of my father and traditional ruler of my hometown, (The land of the Valiants), His Imperial Majesty, Oba Jimoh Oladuni Oyewumi Ajagungbade III is a personal loss to me.

Kabiyesi, was an all round figure in my life.
He was a father, mentor and teacher who did not hesitate to spare the rod when need be to whip me back into line as and when necessary.

As the Bobagunwa of Ogbomosoland, a honourary titled Chief to Kabiyesi, Oba Jimoh Oladunni Oyewumi Ajagungbade 111, I became a member of the inner recces of the palace and I saw first hand a just and fair King who led Ogbomosoland with the fear of God.

Kabiyesi never ruled over Ogbomosoland, he led us into global fame and recognition.

Baba, brought Ogbomosoland into International reckoning and brought about a huge deal of development.

His Imperial Majesty, Oba Jimoh Oladunni Oyewumi Ajagungbade 111, will be sorely missed as a great man of exemplary character, a witty, never compromising King and a man who held on the noble virtues of culture and tradition till he breath his last.

May God almighty grant sweet repose to the soul of Kabiyesi.

E-signed
Otunba Adebayo Alao-Akala.
(Former Governor of Oyo state & Bobagunwa of Ogbomosoland)
