One of the late Alaafin of Oyo’s wives, Olori Abbey, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi, is lamenting the passing of the king.
The Alaafin of Oyo, Lamidi Adeyemi, passed away at the Afe Babalola University Teaching Hospital in Ado Ekiti in April, according to a report from Kemi Filani News.
In the early hours of Saturday, the body of the most senior Yoruba traditional leader was taken to Oyo, where traditional rites were started.
The late monarch was 83 years old and the longest-reigning Alaafin, having ruled for 52 years.
Marking his 5months remembrance, Olori Abbey shared photos of her with the Alaafin’s frame.
Fondly known as Current Alhaja, she prayed for their creator to be pleased with his soul.
“Five months Gone. May Almighty Allah continues to be pleased with your Soul Okomi Atanda Morodiya’Omo ADENIRAN”.
Last month, Olori Abbey grieved as she marked 4months remembrance of the Late Alaafin of Oyo
The queen, who was yet to get over his death, took to her Instagram page to remember him.
Fondly known as Current Alhaja, she noted how it had been four months since he left them.
She prayed for his soul to rest in peace and affirmed her love for him.
Hailing him, Queen Abbey stated that the late king would forever be in her heart.
Her post reads,
“It is four months today that you left us. May you continue to soul rest in perfect peace. Forever in heart, my husband Atanda, where the lion lives, the animal that goes to is not lucky, where the creature of war is left, the father of the one that is left. Walking around the corner. The thought of the pit kills the dog, the thought of the matter is the deceitful, the thought of a rich man is the one who has the power, the portion of the poor kills the owner. Whoever the Atanda holds a long hand if war, the Lord is the king’s law. Continue rest in peace, Omoibironke”.
