The outpouring of emotions over the death of the Aalafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi has continued to come to the royal family and people of Oyo State with Niger State Governor and Chairman, North Central Governors Forum (NCGF), Abubakar Sani Bello saying only God can fill the vacuum created by the demise of the monarch.

While extolling the virtues of the late king, Governor Bello rued the exits of two other traditional rulers from the state, the Olubadan Saliu Adetunji and the Soun of Ogbomosho, Jimoh Oyewumi about five months ago.

“I see this as sorrowful and a trying moment for the people of Oyo State in particular and Yoruba race at large. They lost two traditional rulers not really up to five months and now a top monarch.

“However, we cannot question God but accept it as a necessary end to all living. The only thing we can do now is to continue to pray for the repose of the soul of the deceased and for God to comfort and preserve all that he left behind.

“I sincerely sympathize with my colleague, Seyi Makinde and the entire people of the state and my prayers are with them,” he stated.

Meanwhile the Head of the Oyomesi, Basorun of Oyo, High Chief Yusuf Akinade Ayoola is expected to take over the reins of the Palace pending the appointment of the next Alaafin.
