... 7-day mourning declared in his honour 

 

 

THE ancient city of Modakeke, in Osun State, was thrown into mourning following the demise of the Ogunsua of Modakeke, Oba Francis Olatunji Adedoyin, who joined his ancestors at the age of 96.

 

Though Tribune Online reliably gathered that the traditional ruler passed on before Tuesday, the official announcement of his passage was delayed till Wednesday to observe necessary traditional rites.
The monarch was said to have passed on at Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Hospital, Jaleyemi, Osogbo.

While announcing the passing on of Ogunsua, the Modakeke Traditional Council in a statement endorsed by Oosa of Modakeke, Chief Oloyede Olasupo Adio, a 7-day mourning has been declared in the town, saying all the trees in the community, situated near Ile-Ife would be felled to indicate the transition of Oba Adedoyin.
