By News Desk

The Osolo of Isolo land in Lagos State, Oba Kabiru Agbabiaka, has passed on barely three months to his 20th coronation ceremony.

Agbabiaka, who was the Secretary of the League of Awori Obas in the state before his death, died at the age of 64.

The monarch was pronounced dead on Wednesday by medical experts at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH) where he was receiving treatment for an undisclosed ailment.

Agbabiaka’s demise was said to have shocked the entire kingdom as there were plans already ongoing to celebrate his 20th coronation anniversary after he assumed the throne of his forefathers in 2004.

The Chairman of Isolo Local Council Development Area, Olasoju Adebayo, confirmed his death in a statement made available to journalists.

He stated that the deceased monarch would be buried by 4pm today according to Islamic rites.

According to the statement read, “I have the instruction of the Governor of Lagos State, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, to formally announce the passing of the paramount ruler of Isolo Kingdom, Oba Kabiru Agbabiaka, Adeola Olushi III, today April 10, 2024. He was aged 64.

“He will be buried today by 4pm at his palace, 3/5 Akinbaye Street, Isolo, according to Islamic rites. May his soul rest in peace.”

He, however, did not disclose the cause of his death.
