Alaafin Commiserates with the People of Ogbomoso, Says Soun’s Impacts are Indelible

The Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi, has condoled with the royal families in Ogbomoso and the incumbent ruling royal family of the Soun of Ogbomoso, Oba Jimoh Oyewunmi Ajagungbade III, who joined his ancestors yesterday.

In a condolence message to the family, Alaafin described the late Soun of Ogbomoso as a visionary monarch whose contributions to the developments of both Ogbomoso town and the people, would remain indelible.

“Prayers and fond memories are what we have to remember of the dearly departed Soun of Ogbomoso as a good heart has stopped beating, a good soul ascended to heaven. May God bless and comfort the entire royal family during this time of grief”, Alaafin said.

The monarch noted that no human being has ever been granted immortality, adding that every creature is bound to die, and whatever has a beginning will certainly have an end.

According to him, “Every soul shall taste death. This is the law that governs life. It has no exceptions or exemptions. The living then must take this into account and prepare themselves for it. This short journey on earth is bound to come to an end, and it end is the death of every living thing. All shall return to God, but whatever happens to us during this trip through life, whether good or bad, is meant as a test”.

“May the soul of the departed royal father be at peace. May care and love of those around the deceased family, provide comfort and peace to get them through the days ahead”, he concluded.
