The Deji of Akure Kingdom, Oba Adebiyi Adesidan, has died of an undisclosed illness in Akure the Ondo State capital.
According to SaharaReporters, a source in the palace, answering the phone call, said in a local dialect:
‘Oba ti w’aja’ meaning the ‘the King is gone’.
He also disclosed that the monarch died in his palace as palace guards tried to rescue him.
The late monarch was born into the Ojijigogun ruling house. Oba Adebiyi Adesidan ascended the throne on August 12, 2013. He was recalled from London shortly after the former Deji was dethroned for abusing his wife.
