I was on my way to Lagos from Abeokuta when I was called on the phone that he couldn’t talk again. When I got there, he was gasping for breath, and I carried him, asking what was wrong with him. By the time I placed him on my chest, he gave up. It was just like he was waiting for me.He was buried at Akinale after Wasimi in Abeokuta because he was a prince there. His elder brother is the current king of the town.” His first son Rasheed said.

May his soul find repose. Amen
