The death has been announced of the Amunijio of Ijio in the Iwajowa Local Government Area of the state, Oba Okunade Adegoke.
He died on Wednesday in a road accident after his car collided with a truck.
The monarch was said to be driving himself from Iwere-Ile to his kingdom around 10pm when he ran into the truck. A source said, “From what we could piece together at the scene of the accident, it seemed the kabiyesi was trying to avoid a vehicle when he ran into the truck.
Help did not come immediately and by the time he was found, he had died from his injuries.” Oba Adegoke's death is coming a week after he was arraigned before the Okeho Magistrate's Court for allegations bordering on threat to lives, destruction of family business and using thugs to forcibly take possession of a stretch of land that belonged to another family.
