3 Traditional Rulers Crushed To Death On Their Way To A Burial Ceremony
Tragedy struck Friday in Ogbomoso as three traditional rulers in the Oriire local government area of Ogbomoso zone in Oyo state lost their lives in a ghastly motor accident at Arinkinkin area Ogbomoso while going to the funeral party of the mother of a brother to a traditional ruler, Oloolo of Oolo, Oba Oyebunmi Ajayi.
The deceased Obas are Olodogbo of Odogbo, Onibowula of Bowula, and Alayetoro of Ayetoro, all from the Oriire local government. Their names could not be ascertained at the time of filing this report.
They were said to be on their way to the party when the accident occurred following their vehicle ramming into an oncoming truck.
Olodogbo was confirmed to have died on the spot but it’s unclear at what point the other two passed away.
A source at the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology Teaching Hospital Ogbomoso confirmed the incident to Ogbomoso Insight Online informing their bodies were deposited in the hospital’s morgue.
It is also revealed that the fourth victim who sustained injuries is being attended to in the hospital “but he doesn’t look like an Oba,” the source said.
