The Oyo Palace has confirmed the death of the Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi, the third.

According to The Sun,  the media aide of the late monarch, Bode Durojaiye confirmed his death.

“It is true. Alaafin has joined his ancestors. I saw his remains laid down in the palace. The palace is mourning now. I can confirm that for you. There are many people that have stormed the palace at Oke-Afin in Oyo town. I am there right now. I will give details later through a press statement,” Durojaiye said

When asked about the press statement that was circulated this morning, debunking Alaafin’s death, Mr Durojaiye said, “I did not issue any press statement today. That press release was issued a long time ago when it was rumored that Alaafin was dead.”

According to palace sources, the late monarch’s body has been brought back to Oyo town. 

The monarch was said to have died at Afe Babalola Teaching Hospital, Ado Ekiti, late on Friday.

Alaafin Adeyemi III reigned on the throne of Oyo town for 52 years, making him the longest-serving Alaafin in the town’s history.

He ascended the throne on November 18, 1970, succeeding Alaafin Gbadegesin Ladigbolu II.
