The Olubadan of Ibadan land, Oba Saliu Adetunji, lost his daughter, Mujidat Alagbada, in a fatal accident on Tuesday.
A source at the palace, who preferred anonymity because he had no authority to speak on behalf of the Ibadan monarch, said Mrs. Alagbada died after a taxi she chartered was involved in an accident around the Lagos end of the Lagos-Ibadan Express Road.
“Olubadan is sad because of the death of his daughter. She was the wife of a popular music promoter, Alagbada. She was going to her shop when her personal vehicle broke down. She chartered a taxi but on the way, the taxi was involved in an accident around the tollgate in Lagos.
“She later died of injuries she sustained in the accident. The Olubadan has received support from Ibadan elders and council of chiefs. She was buried on Wednesday according to Islamic rites.”
It was learnt that prominent Ibadan people and dignitaries from all over Nigeria would visit the monarch on Monday (yesterday) to commiserate with him.
Efforts by Punch correspondents to speak with the special assistant to the king was unsuccessful as his mobile telephone number was switched off.
