The burial of the late for Governor of Oyo State, Chief Abiola Ajimobi will be broadcast live on Sunday at 12 noon to avoid too many crowds in consonant with Covid-19 social distancing rule.
His Special Assistant on Media, Bolaji Tunji said in a statement that his remains will be interred at the Senator Central Mosque at Oke-Ado Ibadan at 12 noon on Sunday 28th June 2020 after the Muslim Prayers.
He said the family had to sit with the Governors of Oyo and Lagos States to take decisions on the burial arrangement so as not to infringe on theCovid-19 rules
Bolaji Tunji further stated the appeal of the Family to the Public to observe health protocols as Ajimobi known in Oyo State as THE CONSTITUTED AUTHORITY will be given a private burial.
The former Governor failed to survive a griming battle with his health as he went from medical ailment to the other which made some of his systems to collapse.
Patmos Media Line learnt that some Area boys have been gathering at Beere, the heart of Ibadan thinking he would be buried after Friday Jumat service. It was learnt that the Police have been given strict order to ensure that health requirements especially the social distancing is followed.
There are fears that a mammoth crowd may attend his burial because Ibadan is largely populated and the former Governor comes from a big Ibadan family apart from his ruling the state for eight years being the first Governor to have been returned in an election hence his second nick name of KOSELERI (it has never happened).
The most intriguing part of the story of the late Governor is that he had told his citizens that no man in his family has ever lived up to 70 years and living to celebrate his 70 years on earth is good enough for him.
Senator Abiola Ajimobi died of several medical complications at the age of 70 at First Cardiology Hospital in Lagos on Thursday, June 25.
