A first-class traditional ruler in Ogun State, the Olowu of Owu Kingdom, Oba Adegboyega Dosunmu, Amororo II, is reportedly dead.

Naija News gathered that the monarch died on Monday after a brief illness in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital.

Before his ascension to the throne in July 2005, Oba Dosumu was a civil servant, broadcaster and politician.

Baba (Oba Dosunmu) is dead, he died yesterday. The mood in the palace is gloomy,” a source told reporters.

Oba Dosumu’s death comes a few days after the demise of the Soun of Ogbomoso, Oba Oladunni Oyewumi, Ajagungbade III.

Meanwhile, the Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Mohammed Sa’ad Abubakar, has advised Nigerian politicians to stop politicising the issue of insecurity in the country.

The monarch and religious leader urged the Federal Government to immediately address insecurity in the country and curb activities of criminals disturbing the nation’s peace and progress.

He gave the advice on Monday while speaking at an event organized by the Global Peace Foundation, in collaboration with Vision Africa in Abuja.

According to Abubakar, political office holders should be circumspect and consider lives to be sacred.
