[News] Oluwo Of Iwo Oba Adewale Akanbi Sympathise With Adeleke’s Family, It Indeed A Great Loss

Written by

The Oluwo of Iwo, Oba AbdulRashhed Adewale Akanbi, has said that the recent sudden death of Senator Isiaka Adeleke is a personal loss to Iwo community which will be very difficult to believe as a reality.
Oba Akanbi in a press conference in hi‎s palace in Iwo on Tuesday said the demise of Senator Adeleke  threw the community into confusion as it was one loss, too many.
The monarch who was visibly dazed with the incident hinted that the development was pathetic as it was a literary loss of one of his illustrious sons in the senatorial district.
He said his closeness to the fallen senator long time ago afforded him an opportunity to know that he was generous to a fault.
The Oluwo however cautioned disgruntled elements who have been promoting discord, disunity and animosity over the death of the senator to desist from doing so in the interest of peace and tranquility.
According to him, death will come when it will come and it is a divine command that no leaf can fall off a tree without the express knowledge and approval of the Almighty God.
His words: “I am berieved. The who of Iwoland is berieved. A giant fish has left underneath of the Ocean. One of my sons is gone.
“It is difficult for me to refer to the departed Senator Adeleke as a late. No. I can’t believe it that such a nice and generous man is no more.
“It will be pretty difficult to find Senator Adeleke’s replacement in all ramifications”.
The best honour that can be given to the late Senator is for the sustainance of the continuous peaceful relationship between the people of Ede and Iwo.
“On this note, I am sounding a note of warning that efforts of indigenes and inhabitants of both Iwo and Ede should be geared towards promotion of unity in the two communities”, the Oluwo said.
The monarch prayed to Almighty God to grant the children, widows, the people of Ede and Iwo and the traditional ruler of Ede, Oba Munirudeen Adesola Lawal, the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.‎
