Oyo State’s first-class traditional ruler, the Aseyin of Iseyin, Oba Abdul-Ganiyu Adekunle Salawudeen, is dead.

Consequently, the Monarch would be buried on Monday 25th July, 2022.

A palace source, Prince Femi Olalere said that Oba Salawudeen joined his ancestor on Sunday after a protracted illness.

He added that the Monarch died at age sixty-two (62) years, while he spent fifteen (15) years on the throne.

The death of Aseyin comes barely three months after the death of Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi III.

Oyo State has lost two other first class monarchs in 2022. The traditional rulers are: the Olubadan of Ibadanland, Late Oba Saliu Adetunji and the Soun of Ogbomoso land, Oba Jimoh Oyewumi.

In his condolence message, the Olugbon of Orile- Igbon, Oba Francis Olusola Alao and the Vice-Chairman, Oyo State Council of traditional rulers expressed shock over the transition of Aseyin of Iseyin.

The monarch, in a statement personally signed, stated, “The death of Aseyin of Iseyin, Oba Abdul Ganiyu Adekunle Salau got to me suddenly.”

This is another great loss to the Oyo State Obas Council and Chiefs.

He served his people wholeheartedly and was selfless. We all in the traditional council in Oyo State will miss him dearly.

I pray God almighty comforts and consoles his family and the entire Oyo State.
