Lagos: Buhari Reacts As Truck Kills Students

President Muhammadu Buhari has expressed sadness over the demise of His Royal Highness, the Soun of Ogbomosoland, Oba Oladunni Oyewumi, Ajagungbade III, CFR.

Naija News had earlier reported that the traditional ruler died on Sunday morning.

In a statement to newsmen by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, Buhari condoled with Oyewumi’s family over the death of the highly revered monarch.

The President commiserates with the Government and people of Oyo State and especially the indigenes of Ogbomosoland on the demise of the frontline traditional ruler.

He stated that the monarch’s reign of 48 years reinforced the town as a land of peace, accommodating and a bastion of history and tradition.

The statement reads in part: “President Buhari also joins the Oyo State Council of Obas in mourning the First Class Traditional ruler, who will forever be remembered for his counsel and commitment to the unity and harmony within their ranks.

“He urges sons and daughters of Ogbomosoland to be consoled with the fact that Oba Oyewumi accentuated his reign with the development and progress of the community through enduring peace and extension of hands of fellowship to peoples of other lands.

“President Buhari prays that Almighty Allah will repose his soul.”
