The Alaye of Oke Ayedun Ekiti in Ikole Local Government Area of Ekiti State, Oba Jacob Ala, Okunoye II, has passed away.
Oba Okunoye was aged 101 years.
He died in the early hours of Friday.
A source in the town said the announcement of the death of the monarch was delayed because of tradition.
Ayedun Ekiti is divided into two towns of Oke Ayedun and Odo Ayedun.
The Chairperson of the local government authority, Mrs. Abiola Olukayode, confirmed the death of the monarch in a chat with our correspondent on Friday.
She said, “It is true that baba has died. I have been informed of his death. I was told that he died in the midnight.
“He died as a result of old age; he did not die as a result of sickness. We are happy he lived a good life and impacted his society.”
