His passing occurred around 2 a.m. at a hospital in Abuja, and preparations are underway to transfer his remains to Okene for his final resting place.
In a statement posted via his social media handle on Sunday, Atiku expressed his grief at the loss of the revered monarch, noting that the Ohinoyi played a crucial role in upholding traditional customs and served as an inspiration to his people.
His passing is particularly poignant during a time of national crisis when his guidance would have been invaluable.

He conveyed his heartfelt wishes that Allah, the most compassionate and merciful, would grant the late Ohinoyi forgiveness and eternal peace in paradise.Share on Facebook «||» Share on Twitter «||» Share on Reddit «||» Share on LinkedIn
