Sources close to the monarch at the palace told Newsacross.com that the traditional ruler died on Saturday.
This was corroborated by two other highly placed sources in Abẹokuta.
He said, “It is true that Kabiyesi has passed on. It happened on Saturday but it has not been announced officially.
“We are just awaiting official breaking of the news to the Alake and Paramount Ruler of Egbaland”
