The family of the Onjo of Okeho, His Royal Majesty, Oba Rafiu Osuolale Mustapha (Adeitan II) in Kajola Local Government area of Oyo State, has debunked the rumours being circulated in some quarters that the monarch is dead.
Some blogs and online news media (not Oyoaffairs.net), had earlier reported that the monarch has joined his ancestors, after a brief illness.
However in a twist turn of event, a video post released on Olofin radio by a broadcaster, Adebowale Okelola, has debunked the rumour with an assurance that the 18th monarch of the town, is still alive.
“A good number of people out there are just looking for ways to cash out from people’s predicaments. Since last night, I have heard a lot of people spread news about the death of our monarch, Oba Rafiu Osuolale Mustapha, the Onjo of Okeho.
“However, this is to let you know that Oba Rafiu Osuolale is still alive and he is in the palace. Don’t let anyone deceive you. Long may the king live”, he added.
In the meantime, the former customs officer who was enthroned in 2003, has been said to be hale and hearty as of the time of filing this report.
