Oyekan Dies After Colourful 70th Birthday Celebration

Slider, Tribute

Death came knocking for High
Chief Jas Kolawole Oyekan,
the Adele Olu of Ilaro, Ogun
State, five days after marking
his 70th birthday and three
days after the elaborate
celebration of a landmark
attainment in Ilaro, his home
town. Before these events
BV had met the late second
in command to the paramount
ruler of Ilaro for an in-depth
interview on Wednesday
preceding the Thursday event
marked with prayers as part
of the special package for the
birthday. But unknown to us,
that was to be his last major
interview before he passed on
the following Tuesday. During
the interview, High Chief
Oyekan expressed hope of
fulfilling his dreams for more
years to come.
