BREAKING: Another Popular Yoruba Monarch Is Dead

A popular Paramount Monarch, the Elesa of Oke-Ode, in Ifelodun Local Government Area of Kwara State, Oba Abdulkadir Adelodun, Alebiosu II, is dead.

Oba Adelodun died at the age of 81.

The National Publicity Secretary, Oke-Ode Community Development Association, Kunle Akogun, announced the monarch’s death in a statement on Thursday in Ilorin.

Akogun said that Adelodun breathed his last in the early hours of Thursday after a brief old-age related illness.

The statement partly read, “The late Elesa first ascended the throne in 1985, but following a litigation by one of his aggrieved opponents, he was removed in 1992 by the High Court. The Appeal Court, however, reinstated him in 1997.

“The entire people of Oke-Ode will miss Kabiyesi’s staunch commitment to community development, socio-economic and political upliftment of indigenes of the town.”

The statement stated that the late Adelodun’s reign was “very peaceful and progressive.”
