Owa of Igbajo, a town in Osun State, Oba Olufemi Fashade, has joined his ancestors.
The octogenarian royal father passed on, reportedly after failing to recover from an illness on Thursday.
Oba Fashade, a retired soldier, was installed Owa of Igbajo in 1990.
“But formal announcement of his passage won’t be done until all necessary rites are completed,” a source in the town, who preferred anonymity said.
During the reign of Oba Fashade, the community established a tertiary institution called Igbajo Polytechnic.
