Ibadan (Precise Post) – The remains of former Governor Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State has been laid to rest in his Oluyole Estate residence, Ibadan, the Oyo State capital.
Recall that Ajimobi died on Thursday of COVID-19 related complications.
Sources who were at the burial ceremony said his body was interred at exactly 10:05 am on Sunday.
The burial was witnessed by his wife, children as well as very close associates.
Among the clerics at the burial were Alhaji Kunle Sanni, Sheikh Muyideen Bello, Chief Imam of Ibadan land and Sheikh Abubakri AbdulGaniyu Agbotomokere, among others.
Meanwhile, hundred of associates, friends and supporters were awaiting the body at the Senator Ishiaq Abiola Ajimobi Central Mosque, Oke Ado.
The family sent out the dummy to control the massive crowd already awaiting the remains of the corpse as well as allow for easier crowd control.
The burial also ended the controversy over his final resting place.
Ajimobi’s family wanted him buried in his home in Agodi GRA.
But the Seyi Makinde government disallowed it because the land was under litigation.
Instead, it supported the burial in Oluyole, his first home in Ibadan built over 40 years ago.
At 12 noon, prayers would be offered for his repose at the Sen. Ishaq Abiola Ajimobi Mosque, Oke-Ado.
