Barely twenty four hours after, the Olu of Oke-Odo Ilupeju, also in Abeokuta, the state capital, Oba Muftau Akindele also died.The late monarch was once an hotelier and owner of the MAYAS Hotel, in Sabo Area of the state capital.
The passage of Olu of Imasayi, Oba Olusola Gbadebo Oni, from Yewa North Local Government Area of the state,  which was announced on  Thursday, brought to three the number of the monarchs.
Until his transition, Oba Oni was the secretary of the Yewa Council of Traditilnal Rulers for many years.
